Been eating here for year and buying bakery products (Whoopie pies--the best) weekly. Know the staff and owners. Friendly place. Good food. Watch the bakers in action--fun.

The lattes, available with both milk and non-dairy alternatives, are huge, flavorful and come with a pretty decorative design on the top. One should not forgo the baked goodies though. There is a great selection of traditional tarts, pastries and other baked goodies as well...More

Hoped the reviews matched the experience, but not quite. Strange location. Not easy to find. Once found a small restaurant with an open window to the bakery. Not necessarily appetizinf, but fun if you like to bake. Food o.k. a little oily/ greasy. Staff attentive....More
