“So happy this place opened!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2012

This place just opened Monday. I have been there twice and both experiences were great. The people were incredibly friendly and helpful. Everything I have tried was delicious. The brownie was quite possibly the best bakery brownie I have ever eaten which is really saying something! My companions could not stop raving about the sandwiches, either.

The inside makes great use of re-purposed furniture and decorations. It has a great atmosphere. Finally a delicous and welcoming coffee house/bakery/sandwich shop has opened in Springfield! It is about time!
