The best bakery in Louisville. They serve sandwiches but I have never had them. I have only bought their delicious pastries, cookies, and cakes. The best.

The food was very good. They have a large selection of typical bakery foods. The food had is cooked on site and fresh. They also have sandwiches on the menu however, we did not try any. Nice service as well.
