baked goods

Our menu changes on the regular, but we almost always have some type of cookie, loaf, square, sandwich, scone (if you get here early enough) and we always have all the drinks. Our Baker in Residence, Akash Swar, is often in the kitchen baking something brand new. If something smells good, make sure to try them before they’re gone. If you really love something, let us know so that we can bake it more often!
