I have grown up being able to enjoy their doughnuts. The diner is ok for breakfast. The diner is the reason I only gave 4 stars. The service is good. Friendly staff with just ok food. Would be 5 stars based solely on the bakery.

Great bakery, try the apple fritters. Tasty breakfast foods like biscuits and gravy. Loud diner atmosphere. Floor untidy. Server didn't seemed thrilled to help us. If service were better it could be a real winner.

The sausages were delicious! Twice as big as a breakfast link with a maple touch. Excellent chocolate and alot of it in the chocolate croissant. All the pastries are made visibly onsite and are top quality. The decor is straight out of the 1940's. All...More

Great breakfasts, large portions, very busy, counter service available. Try the biscuits and gravy but only order the large portion if you are hungry. Favorite of locals for over 60 years.
