    So many things to choose from in the bakery, and they're all delicious! They'll even let you sample a little if you're having trouble deciding. Great for late night breakfast cravings.

    The pastrami is excellent; it's thick cut, with the perfect amount of saltiness, and it's not too fatty. The rye bread is the stuff dreams are made of; moist and bursting with flavor. Read more
