WPA - short for Well Made Pastry Alliance offers beautiful baked goods, many of them gluten-free and/or vegetarian/vegan. The folks behind the counter are friendly and knowledgeable. It's a sweet place to settle in, grab a treat and a cup of coffee. Give them a try!

All of these are delicately wonderful!... More

There was a very limited selection of breakfast items in their display case - mostly muffins, but we ordered the egg and cheese biscuit, one with ham... More

...so says my daughter. We ordered a monster sized gluten free chocolate fudge cake for my daughter's birthday. Absolutely delicious, even for us non GF folks. Friendly and thankful staff greeted us. We've been back several times to try all GF and regular items. Always busy, so that says it's good!

This was our last stop on a bike ride/foodie tour of Church Hill. No, we were not hungry at all by the time we arrived here, our last stop. Yes, we ate the beautiful caneles placed before us. We are now obsessed!
