This is the kind of bakery I remember from 30 or 40 years ago. They have good hot cross buns during Lent and other seasonal goods. I like their cake donuts.

We haven't been here for awhile. It's as good as we remember. Not only is everything delicious but the prices are amazing. Reminded us to come back more often and visit the bookstore across the street.
