Visiting Traverse City we happened upon this bakery on a side street near downtown. The coffee was delicious, the quiche was delicious, and the staff were cordial.

I went to the Hall St. location later in the morning and could tell that there had been much more selection earlier. The attendant even offered to check the other location for the baked good I was looking for. Gold star for service! Wares just as good- flakey, tender, light yet rich and buttery croissants. Doughnuts and doughnut holes were... More

I know that I can always get date pinwheels and date stuffed sugar cookies here. They have other great baked goods, but I go for the cookies every time we are in town.

It arrived at hotel in a box that should have been carrying a single layer cake with the lid of the box resting in the frosting, leaving a mess all over the box. The frosting was so thin on the $100 cake the chocolate showed through. Surprised everyone in the lobby ,... More
