Critic's Review

I'm not usually out early on a Sunday morning, but in the past this place had always been packed. This morning the place was dead; no-one sitting outside on a beautiful morning; nobody inside. Maybe it's just the time of year.

There are 3 distinct areas here, the Cafe on the right, what looks like a normal bakery in the center, and a specialty foods area on the left. At the bakery, they have all sorts of baked goods, croissants of course, pastries and cookies. they also have a display with quiches, pizzas and specialty sandwiches.

You place your order and if its something that needs to be prepared you pick it up in the cafe. Personally I never understood why people were willing to wait so long for rather expensive baked goods. I certainly wouldn't wait for a latte and a croissant. They get $8.75 to $9.75 for their specialty sandwiches as well.

They also have a specialty foods area where you can get cheeses, specialty meats and game meat.

I just wanted a cheese danish; I usually get it from the bakery in Publix, but I figured that I'd branch out today, since I'd forgotten to buy one on Friday. The price here is about the same, $1.80. I think it's $1.85 at publix.

It was ok, but frankly, the ones from Publix are better. This wasn't very sweet, and the pastry was too heavy; too dense.

Anyone that would prefer eating a danish on a Sunday morning that was purchased on the prior Friday is not someone I would take advice from.

I didn't offer any "advice", I described my experience. I don't prefer eating a danish that was purchased on friday; I usually buy it on Saturday, but the ones at Publix are better than this. This wasn't that good. Certainly not worth the calories.
