Not sure what all the fuss is about anymore. This bakery is a poor example of the culinary delights in our beautiful town. With the inconsistent hours lately due to the husband taking a different job maybe they would do better if they we to remarket as a "pop-up bakery"?

Not sure what all the fuss is about! The place is small and very dirty. The food is bland ( had zorba the Greek sandwich) and some of the ingredients they advertise on their menu are actually substituted with other ingredients (tzatziki source v. Sour cream). It's a bakery but they don't sell bread.. You can't get a receipt printed;... More

Absolutely the Best in the Nation! And I have had the "Best in St. Augustine" Did not hold a candle to Crazy Russian Girls! Whether you have it as a cupcake or a cake you have to order, just do yourself and your mouth a favor....DO it. You know you want to.

I first ate here as a solo thru hiker on the Appalachian Trail in August, 2014. My memory of the heavy, luscious Apricot Granola Bar that I stuck in my backpack and later used to fuel me on my way northward was strong enough to propel me straight back there as I returned to the area July 21st to hike...

This is a small store front diner type restaurant with a fun and funky menu. It seemed very disorganized and somewhat dirty. The bakery items were open and uncovered on stands while the girl was aggressively sweeping the floor right next to them, the coffee station was dirty also. We stopped in for lunch on a recommendation from a local... More

This funky little bakery turned restaurant has great muffins, bagels, sandwiches and all types of pastries. Eat in or take out. The food is really fresh and tasty. Worthy of a visit for a quick unpretentious breakfast. Thumbs up!

Stopped here on the way home from the trip to Vermont. Family bakery, very sweet, and friendly owners. Offer delicious home style pastry, and outstanding super fresh sandwiches. Great place for coffee-bagel breakfast, and yummy lunch.
