Decent bakery if you're in the neighborhood; tried the cannoli (Italian pastry) which were average/average + but the carrot cake was quite good.

I love this place. Reminds me of eating in my Grandma's kitchen. It's small but cozy. I love their homemade goodies, pies, cakes and cookies. I like to sit and have a tea and piece of pie.

We were surprised by the quality of pastries, comparable to many European specialty shops. Breakfast was delicious and well priced. However, the waitresses could be a bit more professional and welcoming.

I enjoyed their cakes but they were actually outshined somehow by the cookies which had the perfect crisp but soft texture.
