this is the perfect place to get your sandwich on! The bread is homemade, and the toppings are generous. Overall pretty reasonably priced.

Perfect for celebrating birthdays for smaller groups. They are beautifully decorated, they use buttercream. Yeah - butter. cream. Yum. You can get a variety and folks can select what they want. They are portable, so your dieting coworker can bring in home to their kid without too much trouble. Their sandwiches are huge so split one with someone so you... More

We've taken our grandkids on the North Shore Scenic Rail to Lester Park when they are 6 - 8 years old then tour the railroad museum after the ride. 15 of them so far, 3 more to go. We always have a great time, the kids love it.

Sandwich offerings o-plenty! You can choose a pre-described sandwich or create your own from an amazing array of ingredients, toppings and bread varieties. However make sure you are beyond famished if you order a whole one as they can feed a family of four. Be sure to leave room for a cup of homemade soup (Roasted Red Pepper & Gouda... More

This bakery is definitely going to make you say "how sweet it is" We went here to have them create our wedding cake and it was absolutely the right choice. We just needed a small wedding cake for the head table as we had a regular dessert for everyone else. They exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds, they nailed... More

When exploring downtown, stop for a cup of coffee, the soup of the day and a slice of bread, or a sandwich. A little bit of everything, and there is a large lounge upstairs to enjoy a meal in peace.

LOVE this place! The desserts are homemade, like everything from scratch, and they are incredible. Beautiful and delicious. The owner Eileen is wonderful, friendly, and a ton of fun. You MUST try the peanutbutter bars, they are incredible.

Ordered food from here for a business lunch. Ham sandwich, cup of soup and mini cupcake was over $20. Sandwich came on thick bread that was still raw inside. Chicken noodle soup had a weird consistency and was bland. The veggies on the sandwich were not cleaned well and I had to pick through it to weed out stems. Not... More
