The food is always great. There is so much to choose from, that it may take a few minutes extra to decide....There is definately a European atmosphere and charm. The patio is nestled between retail stores and other restaurants. Connected to the main part of the eatery is an artisan bakery, that will tempt you to take something home for... More

Most people really like this place, maybe I'm too picky...but they do have a wonderful bakery, if you're into that sort of thing, and they have loose leaf organic tea which is hubby's favorite reason to keep going there. I can't figure out why they would go to the trouble of providing the highest quality unsalted real butter, real non-ultra-pasteurized... More

Have eaten there several times. Cute little place with lots of outdoor seating. There is something for everyone on the menu. The food is good and hot when brought to you. The bakery next door is a plus.

The place is super cute. It is divided in two, bakery and takeout and restaurant. You look at the menu and go up to a counter to order. The food really yummy, however please let the counter person know to leave off the ton of melted butter poured all over the omelet. ( it really was scary)! I ordered coffee... More

The pastries are fresh, sometimes even warm, the aroma when you enter is amazing. Busy place, counter service is OK.

I walked by here at night and the smell from the baking was amazing - I had to go and try it. I had breakfast here and it was good. Will be trying it again next time
