Hoping for fabulous and instead, kinda good. Blueberry turnover pastry was gluey rather than light and flaky, and the blueberries were pretty tasteless. French toast was pretty good, but thin slices of bread. Our coffee was quite good. We've had other food here in the...More

Quickly little bakery with excellent breakfasts, lunches and baked goods. Try the omelets! Wow good. Great coffee too. This will be a regular hangout for us now that we've found it.

I have been here dozens of times over the last 20 years and now that it is closer to town it is a lot more reasonable to go to. It's worth the 8 minute drive from downtown to get some really nice bread and pastry.

The Blue Heron has been around a while and has a definite following. All of their stuff looks beautiful but be aware, this is whole wheat to the core. That cinnamon roll will take two cups of coffee and will last you all day.

Had a late afternoon snack here: grilled cheese sandwiches, pizza. The food was fine for a quick meal but nothing special. The service was attentive and reasonable quick. We had some of their brownies for take away dessert - they were very good.

We had breakfast here. It was good but not great. The latte was average. The breakfast was an egg dish that was pretty good. The service was friendly and the new location is nice. It has plenty of parking and is pleasant inside. I certainly...More
