Baker and proprietor John MacMillan left a corporate job to open this bakery. Now he's up to his elbows in dough and couldn't be happier. Crisp baguettes, dense loaves made with organic flours, tender sweet rolls, berry-filled muffins, and old-fashioned cookies come rolling out of John's ovens. Enjoy them at an indoor table with a cup of coffee or tea; better yet, in summer, eat your snack on the breezy porch.
This vintage Akron club hosts everything from indie bands and electronic DJs to punk nights and jam sessions.

Locals say it's like a little taste of Tremont in sleepy Broadview Heights.
