Superb, quaint, personable, delightful, delicious, and the quiche is for which to die (don't end with a preposition).

This small bakery uses the best ingredients and changes up the offerings every day. Many times they sell out on the weekend during the high season, but locals know which days to go to get the item type they want. The quiches are the best offered in many different flavor combinations!

Very few bakery items to choose from. Bought a few cookies. Half of them were burnt. Noticed some good looking mini quiches to buy and cinnamon buns, but otherwise, very lacking in items to pick from

Great cinnamon and sticky buns. Recently had an issue when I walked in on a Sunday morning and asked for 5 cinnamon buns (this has never happened before). So, if you are considering ordering more than 4 buns call the day before.

Wish I had known about this bakery from when I first began visiting the Cape. Wow. Sticky buns are SO good along with a large array of other pastries, breads, take-out & bake yourself real meals. They make everything on site and you can surely taste the difference.

Always friendly staff, always fresh baked goodies, and a few treats you can take back to your room and heat up for lazy dinner watching night fall on the ocean.

Excellent, excellent, excellent. We bought ham and cheese croissants, a blueberry cheese and a almond croissants. They all were so yummy. Still hot , fresh out of the oven. It can't get any better.

This is a great small bakery with a very diverse selection of baked goods. It's awesome to see them baking everything right in front of you! The sticky buns are to die for!! Just found this gem this year and we will be making it a regular stop!

This is a small place so come EARLY if you want choices. Come after 9 AM and you get what's left. That said, I stop here every time I visit the Cape and I have never had any bad experiences. The help is very courteous (provided you are) and they do their best to provide you with what they have.... More
