“Worth the detour for home-made bread”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

We were driving Down East to stay with family and wanted to pick up some fresh bakery bread for our hosts. From the earlier TA reviews, the Bread Shack looked promising, so we decided to stop there. So glad that we did. Very authentic baguettes and other savory bakery products (sweets too but we did not try any). Would definitely stop by again if anywhere nearby.

“Bread Heaven”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

European style cafe with oh so delicious treats, especially the ginger scones and artisan loaves of bread. Excellent coffee. Internet access. Seating is very limited (3 tables). If you are looking for a rich, satisfying bread, rolls, pastries, breakfast or lunch you have to give this place a try. My recent breakfast sandwich was the special of the day - flatbread with egg/cheese/vegies--it was yummy and so big I wasn't hungry until dinnertime.

“What a find. Best pastry spot around”
Reviewed 26 May 2013 via mobile

I never miss a trip to this cozy spot when I am in the area. Excellent tasty pastries, wonderfully creative breads, hot fresh coffee. Sit down and enjoy the flavors, smells and warmth of this French pastry shop.

“Never fails to impress”
Reviewed 30 March 2013 via mobile

I go here often and there is always something that impresses me. The other day it was the French macaroons
I purchased a doz as a gift. They are a nice size, just a couple of bites and went nicely with the lovely latte served in a bowl. I'm headed back today for a hot cross bun.
