The desserts look amazing, but, we just had their breakfast pastries. The pastries are so well crafted. Seemed very European with sugar crisped croissant-like goodies, some filled with delectable almond filling and fresh fruit Danish. If these simple breakfast pastries were among the best I've...More

I have been going here for years and find this perfect morning stop. (Not a full breakfast, but muffins and pastries.) They also are our Go To place for cakes. They can design amazing and unique cake tops for ANY celebration.

Muffins and breakfast pastries are not my favorite, but the raspberry chocolate is totally the bomb. They don't always have it, so call ahead if that's what you're itching for. Not cheap, but SOOO creamy and just the right amount of sweet.

My favorite two things here are the chocolate muffins with cranberry on top, and the light rasberry coffee. I typically don't like dessert, but the chocolate muffin is delicious. The owners seem like really nice people as well and like to give your dogs treats!

We love this little spot! Every time I go there, it is full of neighborhood regulars sharing the latest news from around the neighborhood. The coffee is tasty and reasonable. The pastries are good, albeit nothing fancy. It's a warm, homey vibe.

This is a bakery with wonderful desserts. I've always picked up a few to go, and eaten them at home with cold milk. Especially the black cherry tart is delicious and the almond croissant, and of course the carrot muffin with cream cheese on top....More
