Good donuts, eclairs & pies...plus the fudge is tasty. Bagels, cakes & cookies all looked fresh, but we couldn't try everything !

This place is my perfect morning destination. Not only a tourist stop, but you get a glimpse of the locals too. Love the outdoor tables, could sit for hours (and have a time or two) drinking endless coffee and people watching. The BEST chocolate creme filled long johns I have ever experienced! This place is far from inexpensive, but you're... More

The coffee is great and the pastries are the best. Doughnuts were a step above Dunkin Donuts and Crispy Cream. One morning I tried breakfast from the restaurant and it is just average to not so good. It has always been crowded when I have been there. People obviously like it! But it's the indoor breakfast restaurant reminded me of... More

This place is a bakery that also has seating for breakfast and lunch, including a few outside tables. Food is simple, basic, but decent. They feature daily specials. Not haute cuisine - but just fine for a quick meal.

Easy menu, great eggs & hash browns, fresh toast, of course. Reasonable prices for cafeteria style eating. All good. Servers excellent. Went on a week day before 930, and that seemed to be a good time to avoid crowds. MUST carry out some delectable desserts!

Great inexpensive breakfast place with an adjoining bakery. After you have a great breakfast, go to the next room (bakery) where they have dozens of different cookies, pies, cakes, dessert rolls, fudge--YOU NAME IT !!! They sell cookies for $5-6 a dozen and for an extra penny you can get another dozen!!! I used to go to the Phoenix Café... More

We made sure we stopped at The Golden Brown Bakery Café everyday for a croissant or a Danish. Do not buy their bagels, they tasted like they were made from bread dough and they were not fresh tasting at all. All the staff there were very nice and friendly with the exception of an elderly woman who must have been... More

We keep coming back here every year for the 1/4 pan blueberry pies. They are fantastic. The danish are scrumptious, too.

The staff was so helpful for our allergies. They guided us toward yummy treats. It was a nice place to stop for treats for the road.
