We had a nice lunch, it was quiet inside because the weather was not great. Didn't get any of the pastries, but they did their best to look wonderful!

On our way up to Buffalo very early thanksgiving morning looking for breakfast and found this place open, perfect! Great food and wonderful service. Walked out with dinner rolls to take to the family and pastries. What luck! All around great place and our new stop along the way during our visits home.

This place is too good to be true! Breakfast is truly amazing, and everything cooked to order! Everything reasonably priced, and for good reason, THE PASTRY SHOP! The pastries are a must! Cookies, cakes, and doughnuts are all to die for! Always seasonal favorites as well! Once you're done with breakfast, the smells will guide you into the bakery where... More

The bakery is of some of the finest I've tasted and specializes in European style pastries. The prices are extremely reasonable, especially when considering all the work, time, and effort it takes to make these goods. The sweets are a real treat and the clerks are very friendly.

I usually have lunch out with a friend once a week and we like this place the best. Can't report on very many things on the menu because we get the same thing each time.

A well run locally owned restaurant with a simple menu offering a good variety and value. Atmosphere is friendly and informal. Service is efficient and reasonably quick. The attached bakery is a must stop on the way out.

Great for breakfast, bakery - another historic , small, interesting place in Bradford, Pa. You won't be sorry. Simple, good food, nothing fancy, but you will have a good breakfast here. I think they serve other food too, but I always have breakfast , and sweets. Hard working owners' efforts show.

I highly recommend the fromwich, it is delicious. I visit whenever I go camping in Allegany, the pastry shop is a must. On Sundays they have a wonderful breakfast buffet. The people that work there are extremely nice. I recommend having breakfast or lunch there!
