The lady at the counter said they were known for their carrot cake and we can see why. Dense but moist with a touch of pineapple.  Perfect wi ... read more

Nice to have a place to pop in and pick up food made with care. They have a freezer filled with soups, entries, and other yummy foods. Another area with pre-made salads, wraps, and sandwiches to grab and go. Oh yeah, they actually have a grab and go for 2. That day it was Caesar salad, a cookie, and cold melon soup.
