MIX The Bakery

Although known for their pastries and cakes, MIX The Bakery also serves up breakfast and lunch combos that even mom would approve of. In the morning grab a scone, muffin, or croissant with a small brewed coffee for just $3.95, and a small bowl of soup with any sandwich for $10 come lunch.
