Great European style bakery that offers so many choices of pastries and chocolates. The Danish and Strudel were delicious and there were so many choices, it was hard to decide.

I had breakfast here and it was well cooked and well priced. Service was great but not fawning. They have incredible pastries here too. I'll definitely be heading here again.

I am sorry you were disappointed it was a crazy couple of days for our anniversary specials and we definitely sold out everyday! We had every staff on and did our best to keep up with all the customers!

A nice traditional shop with good pastries and coffee. Very good service; excellent value for your money. I highly recommend the vanilla slices. All and all a welcome rest after a busy day of sight seeing.

I am a big fan of Starbucks treats. A little sweet to go with an Americano. This place has pastries so good, I'll never be able to go back to cake pops! Try the dollar roll.The fondant is out of this world!
