Heads up hounds; B&B is on W. Rosemary St where Oriental Garden used to be. The owners' son is a baker & so CH has a new bakery:)
My dad was there today but sadly came home with 0 as they were sold out. He says there are tables andnchairs and they sell coffee, cookies muffins too. They've just started & don't have a printed menu out yet. So sorry I can't tell you how it was; but I would def give it a try.

    I was there on Wednesday afternoon. I bought a loaf of sesame seed bread - full of black sesame seeds on the inside. Very tasty and fragrant, especially right out of the toaster.

    I tasted a sample of black olive bread which was very good too.

      Oooooh, this is very exciting news (although with Weaver Street Market nearby, they're going to have to be *awfully* good to compete). There isn't much parking right there, is there? thanks so much for the tip. We'll try it soon.

        There's a lot at this location parking shouldn't be an issue.

        I got a baguette there that was everything a baguette should be. They told me they make cinnamon raisin bread on Tuesdays. I use cinnamon raisin bread for French Toast so I'll give it a try soon. And their berry muffins are wonderful but quite pricy to my way of thinking. It's a nice space with plenty of parking. I hope they do well.

          I ordered a variety of baked goods from them to cater a goodbye breakfast for one of my co-workers. I got a ton of blueberry muffins, pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, and huge cinnamon rolls made with brioche dough, for about $50. All of the baked goods were amazing, in particular the pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, which aren't usually my thing but were unbelievably good. I highly recommend the bakery, and the staff there are super nice.
