My husband and I had breakfast here, and I had one of the best omelets ever. It was so fluffy and light and absolutely delicious. It was served with a green salad which is a little different. They bake their own French bread, which is...More

Coming here before 11:30am is recommended, since parking and tables often get filled closer to the 12n lunch hour. Our server was excellent (wish I could remember his name). Breakfast was good, although my over easy eggs arrived being room temperature. The bread, butter, and...More

We ate with a group of 12 people on a Thursday night and had great food and good service! An enjoyable low keyed atmosphere ! It's in a shopping center with a lot of cute stores including a wonderful book store and lovely clothing stores!

En route to view the grounds of Sanford University, we popped into this the Mayfield Bakery & Cafe for lunch. The service was superb and food very tasty albeit extremely expensive.

The place is pretty expensive for lunch. The bread brought out is good. The burger is decent but has nothing on it. There is not much to the cafe. More of a business place to eat in the shopping center.

Was one of my favorites for a long time. They know how to cook fish. Dinner is better and more interesting than lunches.

The quality is really good when there is bread you want. Never seem to have the basics like French stick. Occasionally, often things are over cooked. Been there different time of the day and always seem to be out of stock. I thought Bakers started...More
