Small, friendly, good service and good food. Interesting and different items that you probably could not find anywhere locally.

Each of my 6 sisters and I purchased something different and shared. Each was delicious! The locals mentioned this place over and over, specifically for its bread. Stop here on your trip!!

Food is good here and it's served up at lightening speed. Place has been packed every time we have visited -- and always off season -- so I assume it's popular with the locals. They only take cash; and my impression is they don't take any guff from anyone.

What a surprise to find a small bakery that had wonderful food, breakfast and lunch. The Portuguese sausage was good with my husband omelet and my soft scrambled eggs. My eggs were cooked just as I requested. Friendly wholesome place. No credit cards or checks are used here. It is cash only but so reasonable.

We stopped here for breakfast on our way out of town. It was delicious!!!! The only downside was that there was only one service for the entire place, so things moved a little slowly! But the food was awesome! We would definitely go back!

We come here for breakfast on a regular basis. Quick service once you are seated (can be a wait on weekends), great food and prices. The raisin bread toasted is just superb. Cash only which requires planning ahead but otherwise great.
