Our local go-to shop for cakes, cookies, donuts and pies. We often stop in for a quick treat. We've ordered a number of cakes over the years. They are more than happy to make a cake for any occasion.

The counter is chock full of yummy looking baked goods and they do lunch as well. The two cookies I chose were not the best I've ever had (snickerdoodle was a bit dry but good flavor, not too sweet-The coconut lace had just average flavor) but we think we'll go back. There were just SO many choices and we are... More

The smell of this bakery is wonderful, yeasty and sweet. If you can get past the pies and cookies, they also make excellent sandwiches. I had a roast beef with melted swiss, peppers and condiments on toasted sourdough. I highly recommend it. Finished the visit off with a selection of cookies to take with me. Easy parking. Reasonable prices. Relaxed... More

We had heard about their pot pie and decided to bring one home. You purchase it fresh/frozen and bring it home and put it the oven. Sure enough a dang good chicken pot pie, all kinds of yummy veggies inside, green beans, sweet potatoes, peas, carrots and a perfect amount of chicken. Big enough for 4-6 depending on how hungry...

This is like a old time Bakery. They bake pies, cakes and cookies. The cakes are excellent. The service is not that great but worth putting up with.

We got three bakery items for $8. They were just ok. We don't need to go back for just bakery items.

I am sorry I know this long time institution has a fan base, but I just don't care for their style of ingredients. Lots of lard in the basic dough and too much sugar. A bit over priced. $19.50 for a bland fruit (?) pie? Lard cookies? It's not my cup of tea.
