This bakery is totally yummy and their cookies are the size of dinner plates. The "Presidential" cookie is one of the best I've ever eaten and their other pastries aren't bad either.

Found this local bakery as we were going to dinner. Glad to find a bakery open late. Bought lemon bars and sugar cookies. Generous portion sizes. Lots of baked goods to choose from.

Not the usual bland corporate coffee bar with expensive and mediocre coffees. Old fashioned, intimate with real tables and chairs,a nd very pleasant and capable workers. Great for a continental breakfast, asndf infinitely less expensive that that offered by your Hotely.

Tired from touring the city? Enjoy wonderful coffee and pastry there. Sitting outside is a possibility. We marveled at their pastries, and especially their cakes - and their coffee drinks are fabulous!
