Cindy O: “We stopped by Village Bakery & Sandwich Shoppe with 12 hungry people (kids ages 2-13 and adults). We all loved it! Everything they made is from scratch and you can tell! The bakery items are delicious and hard to choose just one. The breakfast sandwiches are also made homemade from scratch, even the croissant sandwiches. The Iced Vanilla Coffee is also amazing and so is the iced tea. The prices are very good too – an inexpensive place to stop for breakfast, lunch, or dessert while at Put-in-Bay. We’ll be going back for sure.”
