Good coffee and pastries for a quick breakfast on the go. There are some tables if you want to sit awhile but it is not a large place. It has a nice local feel.

Stopped in yesterday for a snack. Very fresh baked goods, generous sizing, friendly staff, and had three gluten free choices! Friend said the coffee was great. I had unsweetened ginger tea from the cooler. A gem.

I've been a regular at this bakery for a few years. Its my stop every weekday morning before work. I'm an early bird so I usually arrive just after 6:00a.m. They have a great variety of baked goods as well as breakfast items. The coffee's great too and they have several to choose from. My favorite is the Willis blend.... More

OmG! So delicious....breads are made with 100% organic flour. Staff is extremely helpful if you have never been there before. Coffee, breads, sandwiches and daily specials. I great dining experience. You can sit inside or out. Feel free to sit and chat with family and friends, or study and work on your computer. It's a great atmosphere.

We had heard about this bakery and decided to stop when we were in the area. Actually, we drove 5 miles out of our way to find it and we were NOT disappointed. This is a gem of a bakery with wonderful artisan breads and baked goods. The coffee was delicious. We will be back!

Slice of gingerbread load and the vegan Dequindre cut trail mix cookie. 313 blend with soy milk. Perfect Christmas hangover breakfast spot.

The best place four gourmet breads of many varieties. Fresh baked every morning, buy bread whole or they will slice the loaf for you. Our favorite is their Olive Bread. Old world hard crust bread, the total opposite of Wonder bread.

Like a local, homemade, and better Starbucks. Trendy. Very good baked goods, breakfast sandwiches, and lunch sandwiches. Drinks are ok. Somewhat hard to order because food displayed always seems to be in the way and the place is noisy.

This has become my family's favorite breakfast spot in Detroit. Great baked goods of all kinds. You know it's a hit when the kids ask to go back the next morning! Best of all, you're supporting an independently owned small business!
