“Incredible edibles!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

OMG! Really to die for baked goods. From breads to pastries to donuts. It's a small place with plenty of varieties to choose from but they have limited quantities of what they are selling. So get there early by 8:00am for the best selection and buy more than you will want because everything is so good. I wanted one of everything and I should have done so, no kidding! Closed on Sundays & Mondays, cash only. Run don't walk to this bakery!!!!

“The best Bakery Ever!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

You have to get there early. The line goes out the door of locals purchasing their favorite pastry or bread. Yes, the donut is the size of a dinner plate for $2. Yes , the bearclaws are one of the best I've ever eaten in my life. Yes, the sourdough baguettes are one of the most delicious I've had anywhere. But there is more. You are not just handed these items - each is wrapped in paper and then placed in a box if it is a pastry. There is coffee available as well. There are little tables both inside and out that you can sit and enjoy your pastries and breads. I love this place. But get there early because they sell out early. And they are closed on Sunday and Monday.

“paradise bakery”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Go here and eat. We always get a fresh turkey sandwich on their whole grain rolls. I bought a loaf of whole grain bread to take back to the midwest with me. The coconut macaroon with a dark chocolate bottom is simply divine. The bakery case will make your mouth water.

“Two Words - Chocolate Bombolini”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

There's not much to add to the reviews. A small bakery with just a few tables inside and out and usually a line out the door. There are no words to describe the Chocolate Bombolini. Also highly recommend the Persian Bombolini. Yes, the donut is the size of a dinner plate. And yes, the prices are unbelievably cheap. Good coffee, too. No better place to start the day with a takeout and then off to the ocean. Hope to try their bread sometime as it looks delicious.

“Bear clawzzzzz!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

OMG, I always have to stop here when we're in the area, for a bear claw. Truly to die for! Be sure to go early in the day, though. When I returned on Saturday afternoon, they were sold out of almost everything (closed on Sunday).
