We just went there for the bread. It was crusty and delicious. The varieties were also great. I understand they change their offerings daily. What a treat.

This little bakery is actually good for people with a gluten intolerance. They use a special type of wheat that is not a GMO. So, we went and ordered a few things, including a pecan cherry loaf that was close to 7 dollars. The first slice revealed a slice of bread without a cherry or nut in sight. Second slice... More

Love every thing about this bakery. From the irony of an fire oven in a former fire department to the artisan pizza. We will visit here at least 3 times in our week's stay. Ginger cookies as big as plates. Pepperoni pizza with Sun dried 🍅. And breads that travel back to Indiana.

When I drive behind the old State Hospital (Bldg 50) I am forced to stop at the bakery. Why? They have the best shortbread cookies I have had, that weren't made by a little Scottish lady!! Sourdough breads are awesome, and their breakfast treats are to die for. I always try to go there with Film Festival guests -impressed!

Dropped in on our way out of town and picked up some wonderful bread with caramelized onion and goat cheese, triple chocolate cookie and a short bread with pecans. All I can say is that you really want to buy the store!

I highly recommend the chocolate croissants. The bread here is excellent and the selection is good. They also have cookies and bread sticks.
