Crossed the bridge this morning to have breakfast at Hawthorne. It had been a while and sometimes it's nice to have a change of environment (usually you'll find me at Ken). Pleasantly surprised. My visit to this bakery was long overdue, so I was curious to find out if their quality is "as good as Ken's Artisanal Bakery" on NW... More

Stopped in while my own coffee was brewing....picked up a croissant and a bread pudding muffin - both still warm. Very friendly, too - asked what we were going to be doing that day and had a suggestion. Loved it.

This is one place where you want to make sure that you have time to sit, eat, and visit with others. There area savory entrees, sandwiches, cookies, and many pastries to choose from. Even though you stand in a line for service, it is quick and efficient. This is a great place to meet family and friends at and enjoy... More

We decided to give the Grand Bakery a try for breakfast after visiting Jams across the road the previous day. Whilst the menu isn't up there with Jams, nor is the place quite as groovy or hip it still turned out to be a pretty reasonable breakfast option. This place is mainly a bakery but does have a few items... More

With nothing to absorb the sound, people's voices bounce around in this cafe and eating spot. I was eyeing the outdoor patio, but it was rainy, and I just didn't want to make the effort to go around the front to the side where the patio was. The rhubarb/strawberry tart I ate was tasty, but needed more fruit! It was,... More

We went for breakfast. The bacon egg bolo sandwich w tomato chutney is not to be missed. Croissants are great too. Very attentive staff, one of us had to take a call (walked outside) just after they took our order and the staff waited to make his coffee until he got back inside. The cappuccino is excellent. There is a... More

I stayed in an air b&b across the street from this gem of a bakery and coffee shop. Each morning I took my morning coffee and almond croissant here. I need a good coffee to start my day correctly. This place was perfect. Friendly staff, great coffee and the flakiest croissant. I also met nice people. I wore pajamas, my... More

I wandered in for a coffee and a cookie. 2 thumbs up. The dailies looked appetizing ! The bread baked to perfection. Looks like a great neighborhood.

Cute little bakery. I like that it is a locally owned business. I ordered a hot chocolate and a cranberry walnut scone. When my hot chocolate came out there was heart design. Nice touch. Seating is limited and "community style".

Thank Elizabeth D
