Everyone should know about this Meriden gem. Consistently the best of all. Impossible selection of treats, don't take a number until you have narrowed your selection.

I was driving by and stopped in to get something to bring to my brother's house. The service was good but I specifically asked if the coffee cake was fresh and was told yes. When we went to eat it, it was stale. It had to be 3 days old. I was embarrassed to have even brought it over.

I was shocked at her complete disrespect for this polite officer. At... More
