This is your typical small town bakery. It's a great place to stop for some cookies while shopping. Be sure to take the 2-dozen deal!! First dozen is $5.99 and the second for $0.01!!

The bakery items were amazing! I highly recommend the cinnamon roll. We stayed for their breakfast. I loved my breakfast but my boyfriend had the corn beef hash and it was really mushy.

Don't think of this as fast food even though cafeteria style service. . It took an hour for our order of breakfast quiche and breakfast burrito. When we ordered they said 20 minutes. Yes, unlimited coffee but this is ridiculous. Definitely will not return.
