Overall
overpriced food

I pass by this place when I walk to school every morning. I went in a couple of times to give it a go, but I was disappointed. I was hoping for a cheap, friendly neighborhood bakery that I would fall in love with. almost everytime I get a cookie or some pastry, its almost always stale. I feel like everything that i eat there is never fresh. the workers seem kind of snooty if youre not one of the rich and old usuals that come by. not only that, but its terribly expensive. I paid 10 dollars for half of a sanwich and a stale cookie. needless to say, I am going back to sweetish hill bakery.

Overall
Very Good -- But

This is one of my favorite bakeries everything is good. However, I found out from the staff that lots of food is thrown away if it doesn't sell -- I was shown huge bags full of edibles (I couldn't have fit them in the trunk of my car.) This is shameful, in other cities here in Texas, such food is packaged and delivered to "soup kitchens" so that it can be incorporated into meals. One kitchen said that they could use anything edible to create meals. I was disgusted that in Austin of all places that such an upscale business would throw away food that had been for sale only an hour earlier.
