We ordered Hot Cross Buns from this fine bakery 2 years ago for the first time and we continue to order them year after year and we tell all our friends and family. Also, the service is always very sweet!

Wonderful little place in the heart of town. Just exactly what a hometown bakery rom the past should be. Wonderful cakes for special occasions. Great coffee, go sit people watch and enjoy your goodies, my fav.

This is not an authentic european bakery. Had to throw the apple cinnamon bread away because it was awful. Service could use a little customer service training.

Which bakery do I choose? It seemed like there was a bakery on every corner but we chose this one as it had delicious cookies! Had oatmeal raisin but they also had pecans and coconut in them too. Very delicious.

Got the "walk-up" sampler of three aebelskiver (Danish pancakes) with jam for $3.85. Nicely cooked and tasty. Cannot comment on the rest of their menu.

I love their scones the best. We tried a bear claw and cinnamon roll with apples, both were also excellent. Cute chairs to sit on outside and enjoy the day.

This is a lovely little bakery with every delicious, buttery, sweet ,yummy pastry that you would expect to find in a faux Danish town. You can have a coffee and some pastry there or to go but don't forget some buckets of butter cookies to bring back to friends and family!

We decided to stop in here to get some pastries for the road. I got the Danish waffle with cream and rasberry inside and it was delicious! The cream tastes like buttercream and was sweet. We also got different flavored macarons. They were good, but we've had better. The ladies inside were super friendly and helpful and asked us where... More

What a delightful bakery. The petit fours took me back to my childhood with visits to my Gran. The service was great and the delicacies even better
