The owner Tony is a baker from the streets of New York City to 20 plus years with Publix! His almond bearclaws are by far the best I have ever tasted! I love his cinnamon crisp also.

This is the only place my wife and I will order cakes from. The owners have never failed to make us happy. We have used them for the last four years and will continue for as long as we can.

I went in to have a sandwich and came out with soup, sandwich and a variety of assorted and delicious pastries. Yum. And I keep going back. Family owned and operated, great folks and great food.

Just can not get enough of the Guava pastries (both with cheese and without). Also, the berry pastry is fantastic. Large selection of foods that I did not try, but the place always smells delicious.

On our return to Ellijay, GA from a week's vacation in Hendersonville, NC, we stopped in Franklin for the first time. We parked on Main St., looked around for a place to have a coffee break and saw Life's Bounty. Glad we did. My wife loved their coffee. I get my caffeine fix from Pepsi. We enjoyed a cinnamon bar,...

Curb appeal no, but when you enter be prepared to enjoy fresh made pastries and coffee. For under $10 we had terrific indulgence. No fancy coffee. Some locales were enjoying a large breakfast, so we shall return. Small dining area. Nice people and clean.
