This cute little place has decent croissants and pastries. But I got a not-so-pleasant surprise when I ordered a chai tea latte. My tea tasted like coffee. When I asked the lady what exactly went into my drink, she politely said that the drink was a blend of tea and espresso shots. That’s one form of tea I had never... More

We stopped here to get some baked goods to take with us on our way out of town. We picked up several small pastries and cookies and they were all excellent. It was a nice treat.

This place is an absolute gem! There were so many pastries and cakes to choose from! Had the chocolate croissant (basically a huge pain au chocolat) and loved it!

I love there bakery, the bread, cakes, specialty german baking is so so so good. Went for lunch and was very disapointed, had a sandwich, it had hardly any substance to it. I guess I was expecting a big deli sandwich which it was not. Don't go for lunch but go for the baking

Came here to get some pastries to bring to a brunch some friends were having and they were such a good success. Everyone loved them! Can't wait to go back for more.

My girlfriend and I visited this location in hopes of having some delicious baked good. We were pretty excited by all of what we saw and we ordered a couple of pastries and a large gingerbread man cookie, seeing as it was their namesake and all. I was disappointed by the hastiness of the service and even moreso by the... More

When I ask for a cake with no jam or jelly in it, if you don't have one, let me know. Don't fool me into buying one with jam to discovert after I've cut it!

Delicious pastries and affordable prices. The store is open later than most bakeries in the city, which is an added bonus. I will definitely be back.
