AP has his first impressions
posted at AV Club Madison; here are mine.
The breakfast sandwich (croissant, scrambled eggs, bacon, cheddar) is very made-to-order, to the point of being too hot and too loose. But the ingredients are solid even if the composition is a little rough.
Heritage's bakery case is a panoply of pastries and breads; I dare say that their morning bun might even please the discriminating taste and taxonomy of our buddy kulgar.
I wasn't a Carl's Cakes patron, but I suspect they didn't do a whole lot to change the interior of the space--and they do bake cakes, as well.
The coffee needs to be stronger. Still, I'll be happy to stop here rather than hoofing it more out of my way for a commute coffee/bakery stop.
