Quaint bake shop. It has all you need. Giant Donuts to cookies, brownies, pies, brownies. The best part was that they sell a variety of freshly baked bread. We took the apple cinnamon loaf and it was delicious.

They do not have a traditional breakfast but with everything pastry item I can think of, it is your own fault if you leave hungry. I have probably had at least 1 of everything they make. It is terrific
