This bakery was right across the street from our hotel. We had a 6 hour drive home so we just stopped in to pick up a snack for the trip. The cheese and cherry Danishes we chose were absolutely delicious! Will definitely stop there again...More

Great breakfast place. Good coffee, fresh ingredients, crepes and good prices. Staff are helpful and work hard to please. Breakfast is served until 2. Pastries and baguettes are excellent also. Always get croissants and pastries for guests from there. Never disappointed.

This bakery has a great selection of pastries - from almond croissants to eclairs to almond horns. A friendly staff and good service. But, its all about the pastries.
