Jackson's has the best selection of freshly baked goods in town -- from all types of breads - bagels to panini + cookies, muffins cakes and more. Of course one can sit out overlooking the village square fountain and have a hot or cold drink.

Delicious freshly baked pies, doughnuts, and other important treats to enjoy after a long ride or exercise. Very friendly staff and good value. Classic pie flavours; hard to refuse any of them. Not the best coffee I've ever had, but hey, it's a bakery!

The service was okay, and it was busy. But the coffee was burnt tasting, my pie was average, and the custard in my custard square was rubbery.

What would you like? And then keep looking at the selections of pies, fresh bread, cakes, slices, sandwiches, panini and get in early for a cronut before they sell out. What's a cronut? A cross between a croissant and a donut 😍
