TOfoodreviews – Woodlot Bakery and Restaurant

I’d read much about Woodlot in the last few months: about the fantastic bakery, the locally-sourced ingredients, the simplicity of the food and decor. Between the personal recommendations and the fawning of the print and online food community, the decision wasn’t too hard to make…
