The food is very good. I would not call it a bakery exactly - there's little bread there. So it's a cafe. It offers various bites and snacks, including plates, on the sweet or savory side. There's Mediterranean influence but it hardly is country "authentic."...More

A wonderfully cozy atmosphere. The bakery was bustling.. very busy, classical music soothing in the background. There are tons of creative spices, deserts, wines. They have salads and warm lunch food in every colour & textures! A real treat for an adventurous eater!
