Wholy Grain visits anyone?

This is a new bakery that has just opened on the corner of Shawmut & Hanson. Saw reference to it in the Feb openings/closings Feb thread, and I have to say it looks pretty promising. I popped in there today around lunchtime (i think it has only been open for a few days) and the place was humming....lots of people getting sandwiches, some really good looking baked items, and just a generally cozy vibe, with friendly counter folks. I got a chicken/bacon/avocado wrap (but instead of a wrap i asked for it on sourdough, and they happily obliged) and it was good....i think around $7 for a sandwich so pretty much on-par with Buttery sandwich prices (or maybe just a tad less?)..but it was their baked goods that got me excited. A delicious looking cinnamon bun, some tasty looking muffins and scones, and assorted breads too. This is a nice alternative to muffin/coffee runs at Buttery (which I always have felt is just a bit too pricey and not all that great, really) and about a 30 second walk from my place, which might be the biggest selling point of all ;)
Will report back on that cinnamon roll over the next day or two, but wanted to see if anyone else had tried it and/or new anything about the folks that had opened it...?
