Amy's Baking Company-Scottsdale

Noticed a new restaurant about to open in Scottsdale (Scottsdale and Shea area) Same plaza as Pita Jungle/ Shea 14 theaters
Named "Amy's Baking Company"
Looks to be a traditional Trattoria/ coffee shop/Bakery
Anyone know anything?
Just wanted to bump this topic.
I've noticed this place a couple of times when it wasn't yet open and was excited to try it. Went back to check out a menu and possibly eat, but it was during the period of maintenance issues. Haven't been back since, but I check out their online menu and it sounds pretty interesting, and looks like it might be a successful and unique addition to the area
However, I also noticed on the menu that it may have the potential of being slightly overpriced. I obviously haven't seen or tasted the food, but I personally would hope for exceptional quality if charging $13-$15 for a sandwich.
Has anyone else tried this place? Thoughts?
I stopped in last week after grabbing some to-go hummus from Pita Jungle. I got a couple cupcakes, a couple chocolate croissants, a cannoli, and a sticky bun. While good, the cupcakes and sticky bun were horribly dry. The flavors were there, but there was no moisture. The chocolate croissants were really good. The cannoli tasted like a cannoli. I'm not a huge fan of them, but decided to give this one a try.
As for the maintenance issues, she said they'd had some sewer line issues or something along those lines.
That "Kitchen Nightmares" episode was the weekend subject for some foodies, and us.
It will be interesting seeing how things sort out. After we saw the Gordon Ramsay episode, the Amy's Web site went down, or was closed (?).
Let's just say that we did not rush to Shea & Scottsdale (actually a bit to the East), to see for ourselves. We resisted.
