I stop in occasionally for cookies or bread, but lately have shifted to the Black Sheep. While the counter help is usually friendly, when the owners show up to transact business--it's a different story. Rude, dismissive, off-putting. Who needs such lousy attitudes when you're forking...More

A sport is a genetic variant that appears unexpectedly. In a town dotted with distinctive and encouraging shops, Henion's stands out as a hole-in-the-wall family bakery.

We dropped in this little bakery on the advice of our son who lives in Portland OR. The pastries looked so delicious, it was difficult to determine which ones to get for our little snack. We both made excellent choices and devoured the almond crescent...More

I would go here every day if I could. When the raisin walnut swirls are warm, there is nothing better on earth. Their muffins and quick breads - like the blueberry/raspberry yesterday - are delicious and buttery. All the bread is good, but the raisin...More
