    Line is long but moves incredibly fast. Buttermilk fried tofu sandwich is delicious and filling. Buttermilk fried chicken sandwich is definitely a must-try though. Pear ginger scone is too sugary.

    The fried chicken sandwich, with its spicy-tangy jalapeno slaw, made this place practically world famous in the last half-decade, and every day they're open, at lunchtime, that's what the line is for. Read more

    Damn good scones and sandwiches. The line is long, but I literally waited a minute to get my order, their staff is efficient and friendly AF and they know how to prepare for the lunch rush.

    If you're looking for something other than their fried chicken sandwich, they also have superb brisket and egg salad sandwiches. Come early (before 12:30) for the brisket though - it sells out fast.

    Their current business hours are Tues-Sat 11am-2pm. And yes the fried chicken sandwich is tender & delicious. Couldn't choose b/t choc chip cookie & strawberry shortcake so got both, nom! ;)

    Fried chicken (or tofu) sandwiches. Don't worry about a line as they are cranking out this fried beauties faster than you can whip out your wallet and pay the $9 for the sandwich.

    When you go to a place that serves only a fried chicken sandwich, you get the fried chicken sandwich. And you come back again and again for the fried chicken sandwich. It's that good.

    The best chicken sandwich I've ever had, took it home and adding Sirarcha and BBQ sauce did nothing to enhance the taste, was perfect on it's own.

    The lines are long, they run out of chicken but it is a success story because of the slaw -- jalapenos, cabbage and some secret ingredients. Good scones, and lemon ice. It all works.

    The fried chicken sandwich is amazing but the 9 dollar price tag is nuts! My gf and I now purchase one and share because 18 bucks for two sandwiches seems a tad much.

    I recommend the Chicken Salad because the bread in the sandwich is merely mediocre. Also make sure to try the Lemon Ice! They usually run out so don't go right before closing.

    The fried chicken sandwich definitely lives up to the hype! Could use a little more heat/spice, but luckily there is hot sauce available. The slaw on the sandwich rocked! Read more

    Bakesale Betty has earned a cult following for one thing and one thing only: buttermilk fried chicken sandwiches, served on a bed of vinegary coleslaw garnished with jalapeños. Read more

    They have a fried tofu sandwich, too. Since I don't eat meat, I can't rate what most customers are coming here for but the sandwich was tasty.

    Anticipate not being able to find parking and waiting in a line. Fried chicken sandwich is good but not worth the hype but it could've just been an off day. Very generous piece of chicken :)

    Fried chicken sandwich is large enough to share for two. Order with a lemon bar, brownie, ginger cookie, and a choc cookie. Glorious!

    They usually have a 3rd sandwich special. Today was sloppy joe. Hard to deny the chicken though so go with friends and split all 3!

    Order the fried chicken sandwich, of course. Ask for it the way owner Alison Barakat likes it: extra coleslaw, extra jalapenos.

    If they sell out of sandwiches they will give out free pie. Sit close to the restaurant, better chance of getting freebies.

    Although the line is often intimidating, it moves quickly. Enjoy the sandwiches, and don't skip the molasses cookies.
