Sift's makes the best guava and cheese Danish pastries anywhere. We also had raspberry, chocolate, and almond croissants. The almond croissant was sliced and filled with a tasty and light almond whipped cream. The raspberry and chocolate croissants were striped with raspberry red and chocolate...More

We got lucky there was no line it was closed to closing time. The croissants are to die for! They have gluten free chocolate chip cookies which were good. I had walnut sea salt chocolate chip cookie. Yum!

Best iced caramel latte and macaroons I’ve had in a long time!! Delicious raspberry chocolate torte also. The setup is beautiful to look at and very organized. The staff was super friendly and efficient as well. I will definitely be back.

Our hotel recommended we get breakfast at sift and it did not disappoint! We tried a croissant, a cinnamon bun, and the macaroons. This bakery has apparently been named best in the country, and it's well deserved. Every item we had was a confectionery delight!...More

Extremely well done pastries and cakes, content and decoration, similar to a very good Dutch or French bakery, with USA sized portions, especially the croissants!

I know that most people rave over the baked goods and breads. And, the outdoor cafe is lovely. But I do not find the pastries particularly exceptional. I frankly prefer Zest in the Velvet Mill.More
