Absolutely delicious pastries, breads, cookies, etc. The selection is incredible with good prices and friendly service. Pick your day carefully as this place can get really crowded.

Whenever we’re in the area, this is a MUST stop! The Dutch letters are delicious! We always buy them as well as the pillow puffs and cheese sticks. There is usually a line but it moves very quickly!
