So cute! This little bakery has fabulous pastries that taste as good as they look. There's a tiny dining area inside, and a few tables outside, or you can get your goodies to go. Try the almond tart; it tasted just like the ones I used to get when I was an exchange student in Sweden, and we'd trek over... More

Yum yum yum. You can never go wrong with this bakery . Only problem is making your mind up on what to buy. Best choice is, is to go at least twice a day for as long as your stay in the town. The kids and yourself will thank you. Lol

Ten minutes later we were sitting out back with two cups of coffee and some excellent food. Part of our discussion centred around what we would order when we... More

I had the most wonderful chocolate cream on a cookie covered with chocolate -- oh, so delicious. My husband enjoyed his chocolate covered Macaroon. Don't think of your diet when you walk in here, just enjoy!

Your typical tourist-oriented bakery with lots of sweets. Prices are a little higher accordingly. I am not a big fan of fudge but they were pretty tasty.

We parked in the lot behind and found ourselves walking through here to get the village. Of course we returned to get some tasty treats and a few lattes to continue on.
