Great home made cookies, cakes, and more.
I love this little dog friendly bakery. If you are out for breakfast, the egg, bacon, maple syrup sandwich is to die for. I also love the pb& j cookies and the ginger cookies. If you are in want of a cake, they are all incredible. My favorite is the Irish Car Bomb. They have gluten free baked goods and great Yogi treats for your pups... read more

Oh my gosh! TDF Cinnamon Rolls! Must Try!
On our last morning we walked to the Cake Bake Shop and bought cinnamon rolls that were probably the best I have ever had! Everything in the case looked amazing! We saw breads, pastries, muffins, homemade giant oreo cookies that I wanted to try, cupcakes, cakes, etc. Everything looked absolutely delicious!

We got doughnuts and salted chocolate chip cookies today. Both were so delicious and reminded me of treats that the old Helms Man used to bring in his big yellow truck.
