“The bakery has been a staple of my life since I was a child. From breakfast with my grandparents on Sundays to running in for a cheeky donut before work. The custard long john is a classic and my all time go to comfort food. Going through the line to order your food brings back so many good memories and the western omelet just hits the right spot.” – Olive Victor
