Found this GEM by accident, I saw someone come out with some donuts and had to go inside, found out they served breakfast and it was awesome and very cheap.

It has become a tradition to stop here for Donuts and coffee before we depart on our fishing charters. Yum! The donuts are great. The other sweets look good, but we have never tried them. The staff was very friendly, especially for 6:30 in the morning. We will continue to come by before we depart on future trips.

We browsed, looking for just the right thing; when we found this sweet shop, we felt we struck gold! The second dozen cookies was a penny if you purchased the first dozen for $5.99...we tried all different flavors to rate them. The best were the German Chocolate chip cookies, then molasses and oatmeal raisin. Not a fan of these flavors,... More

I had a fresh baked croissant and it was incredible. Friends had the scones and they were scrumptious!

We tried the pumpkin pie tartlet, a mini blueberry pie, and a croissant. All were delicious and priced fairly. Highly recommended for real American baked goods.

Breakfast was weird for 1rst timers. Have to get up to get own coffee, Bakery was disappointed in Tiramisu, was from frozen and was more like 'cake' then actual desert, nice selection of pastries

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
