My only complaint is that they don't have gluten free bread. My family loves their assorted variety of baked goods. The muffins are wonderful, as are the cookies and the spinach/feta cheese croissants. My son in law from Omaha tells everyone who visits Evanston about...More

We came here for pretzels, only to find out they don't have them. However, we found some nice coffee cake and croissant sandwhiches that were yum. The service was very slow - especially the time it took to get coffee!

Having an awesome bakery right around the corner from your office is a dangerous thing! Excellent doughnuts and sweets, love their red velvet and maple bacon doughnuts. Tasty sandwiches. All very reasonably priced.
