Do yourself a favor and enjoy some sweets. Don't hesitate to get a sandwich and a flavored cup of coffee. A lot of fun to sit inside or outside and enjoy food and friendship.

I just don't get all the hype. I got a plate of Christmas cookies from a guest recently and was excited to finally try the goodies at the famed West Side Bakery. I found the cookies to be just OK. The butter flavor was barely...More
