Bread Top House is essentially like a tiny corner cafeteria, with things like lunch sandwiches, pastries, and loaves of bread lined up in containers against the wall. It’s cash-only, but everything is under $5, so come here when you want to get a quick, affordable lunch. And definitely don’t miss out on the pineapple sponge cake or the coffee swirl cake.
