This was one of the few place open for breakfast early on a Sat morning in old town. We had apple and cheese crepes, yogurt/granola, croissant , and excellent coffee. Nice location with either indoor or outdoor seating.

Ordered some pastries and several macaroons to go. The pastry was pretty bad and then I almost cracked a tooth on a foreign substance inside of it. Yuck. My wife tried a macaroon. She took one bite and spit it out it was so bad....More
