Stopped in here for a snack while walking through town. They had alot of types of breads and bakery items. Its right in the middle of town and you should stop in for some cookies or bread if you are in town.

All locals get their bread, dinner rolls and pastries here. There's always a line since its small but you can take anything you get right across the street to the Square and be very happy. Great coffee, pastries and brunch type food.

We ordered box lunches in advance to enjoy while we were out wine tasting. There was a very nice selection of sandwiches and salads available for us to choose from.

This little bakery was just awesome! My suggestion is to no go too hungry, you'll want to order one of everything. The panini are fantastic and the croissants were just perfect!
