Tucked inside a tiny former train depot, de.lish features from-scratch favorites baked fresh daily.

Cheesecake is the star, with more than 30 flavors in rotation and three to five on hand each day, but don't overlook the bakery's cookies, cupcakes, scones, muffins or cinnamon rolls. Breakfast is served all day: The Mt. Everest is a tower of sugary French toast (and we say try it for lunch). Sandwiches are huge, and The Veg sandwich (cream cheese and avocado hummus layered on ciabatta with Japanese cucumber, red onion, Roma tomatoes, roasted red peppers and spinach) is downright delicious.

Bacon fanatics, try The BLB. That's bacon, lettuce and bacon - who needs tomato when it just crowds out the extra bacon, right? And our favorite? The Inferno, where slow-cooked beef, jalapeños, pepper Jack and homemade Cajun remoulade are topped with fried onions and toasted on French bread.
