Regular favorite sandwich spot whenever in the area. Love the turkey sandwich on their seeded bread. It is large enough to share or save half for later. Tips-. Call in your sandwich order and you get your choice of cookie free. We also like to explore the day old cupboard on the back for something to bring home for later...Cookies,... More

This is a hidden gem off the main drag, but totally worth a drive down Ygnacio Road. They have an amazing assortment of baked goods and incredible lunch offerings with their house baked breads. The croissants, morning muffins, cinnamon loaf bread, and breakfast sandwiches are amazing. Of course the cookies, cakes, and cupcakes are divine as well. Our lunchtime favorite:... More

This is the place everyone in the neighborhood goes to for breakfast pastries! They have an incredible array of muffins, croissants, scones, morning buns and danish. The cinnamon rolls go especially quickly! At lunch the line is long for their sandwiches. I have not purchased their cakes, but they look gorgeous. The cakes are pretty pricey, but I am sure...

Next to our office. Went there several days for lunch while in town. Staff always very friendly. Sandwiches are huge and a variety of breads for each type of sandwich. Try the chicken salad sandwich or the BLT....everything was delicious

This place has excellent sandwiches and salads. Their bakery is phenomenal. They have both indoor and outdoor seating available. They serve breakfast items as well, but I have not been in for breakfast. They can get crowded during the traditional lunch hour, but worth the trouble. Gluten-free options available. Friendly staff.

Sweet affair used to have great sandwiches at reasonable pricing, but that has changed. The amount of meat on the sandwich is greatly reduced to the point where you feel like you are eating just bread. And the prices have increased significantly so it is not a cheap meal. Well, it was good while it lasted, but in this day... More

Looked for lunch after visiting Ruth Bancroft Gardens 1/2 mile away and found this gem! Excellent sandwiches on their baked breads: quality plus quantity. Free drink refills & cookie samples. Extensive gourmet baked goods...too hard to choose! Interesting decor with old signs and antique spice tins. Call in your order ahead and receive a free cookie! I highly recommend this... More

Extensive selection of beautiful, baked from scratch cakes. 3 sizes to choose from, prices start from $13 to around $35. Mostly real buttercream frosting, not too sweet (which I like) and no hydrogenated fat. About 10 kinds of cupcakes, 3 were cute Easter theme with rabbits, "grass" and sprinkles. I bought 2 shortbread cookies with St Patricks Day icing for... More
