Story - 8/10
Ousawa Miko is a 16-year-old girl who loves bread. Especially when it's shaped cutely! One day she decides to apply for a job at St. Molly's bread store, but when she gets there, the person who hires her on is a cute boy her age! Although he makes fun of Miko's clumsiness, he seems to be genuinely kind. But when they find out they're neighbors, they grow even closer.
The story was a little cliche. Ive read about 4 stories with the main working in a restaurant/shop with 2 other male characters, ad they both fall for her. So it was very predictable. But me, I like stories like that, so an 8 is just fine. :D They story moved smoothly, had its cute moments, and had enough character development to end it without frayed ends.
I love art like Kozue-Senseis. Cute, smooth and simple. Each character had their own design, not like some character who would all look the same. Each supporting character (like the kids and the old lady) looked unique and easy. The backgrounds were cute and vibrant, easy to tell what kind of place they were in. Even the bread looked good enough to eat.
I always love good character development. This manga has that. Its not like they go from one extreme to another, just far enough to show they've changed. Each character was unique, had their own personality and even if they aren't memorable, they're cute anyways. xD
Overall - 10/10
I'm a natural shoujo freak, so of course I liked this type of story. if you liked stories like: Kitchen Princess, Shiawase Kissa 3-choume, Beauty Pop & Petit Four, you will totally like this. It's short, sweet, has a good ending, and if you're a glutton like me, then you might just get hungry reading it. :D read more

I think they could have devoped the charcters better and made the experiences of the customers more shown.
Overall though it was wonderful!
