Lovely little place in the Columbia University area near the famous cathedral. Very popular, lots of local students and professors and older locals, a very neighbourhood vibe. Excellent friendly staff and fabulous cakes. Will definitely go back again.

When I was there I did not see any signs saying that certain pastries were gluten free...that's not to say they don't have it. I'd go and just ask them. Have fun !!
