Will you guys be showing US women's soccer tomorrow morning?
I love your food and coffee! Wish you would switch from Grubhub to Chomp for delivery. Chomp does a better job. I’ve given up on Grubhub and will miss having your excellent coffee and breakfast delivered on Saturdays.
Is there any chance you would consider making more almond croissants each day? I usually don't get there until 9am and they are sold out already on most days. If they're gone, I usually will not get anything else, other than coffee. They seem to be far and away your best selling pastry, and I'm guessing that an extra dozen each day would sell well before closing.

They are really outstanding (by far the best almond croissants in IC, and probably the midwest!), and I think you could sell a lot more than you are currently making each day.
