Top Review: This place has been a slowly evolving business from serving cinnamon rolls out of their home to a restaurant open a few days a week. But don’t be fooled, this has been one of the best additions to Sherwood is quite some time. Everything I have had here has been excellent. The chicken salad sandwich is one of the best I have had.Tom A.

It’s a 24hr donut shop.  The only reason why I gave a 4 is because no vegan or gluten-free options.  Everyone else in the group enjoyed a dirty dozen.”Yas D.

Top Review: “This has become my weekend go-to for breakfast after a walk in War Memorial Park. It seems to be packed during all pre-noon hours but I can usually find a place at the bar to sit by myself. I have only had the biscuits because they are amazing and buttery and flaky (maybe a little too flaky, I have to eat them with a fork) and melt in your mouth. The pancakes and breakfast bowls look delicious and I will get to them as soon as I make it through the biscuit options. The Fancy was great flavor but a little light on the dig. The bacon, egg and cheese was just perfect. Looking forward to trying many many more things here.”Jessica C.203 N Van Buren St, Little Rock, AR 72205; (501) 747-4960

Top Review: “Just stopped in for a coffee, so can’t speak to the food.  I ordered a specialty hot drink, a Gingerbread Latte, and asked that they only use about half of the flavoring. I just don’t like my coffee to be overwhelmingly SWEET. They made it perfectly, and I sat and enjoyed the atmosphere, out of the cold.  Quiet, calm, and welcoming.  Seemed like a great place.”Wanda H.

Top Review: “They have never let me down.  Love their cupcakes and cookies.  I will say, that from my personal perspective, that when I first looked at the cookies, I thought they would not be good as they are not visually pleasing.  Not sure why- they just look like they are missing something color-wise.  But when I ate them, they were great.  The cinnamon rolls are a real treat too- I bought the 6 pack to share… well, by the time the kiddos got home from school, there was nothing left to share.”Jon H.
