Yum! The cakes are delicious for special occasions, tastey for lunch. Pastry goodies are my favorite. I’ve frequented the bakery/lunch for around thirty years and I keep going back. ParkIng is a problem but they do have a drive-through.

Don’t waste time going anywhere but this place when you’re craving carbs in Olympia. Baking is part science, part art, and part the love of both. These folks have all of that going on, every day.

I stopped by for a breakfast and found very limiting choices, mostly consisting of sugar, pastry and coffee. One offer had eggs. Young girls behind counter quite friendly and pleasant but other lady was a bit more terse, not rude or anything. Pastry is nothing...More
