We stopped by here for a quick treat, and even though we weren't even hungry, the sheer glorious front window display is enough to draw ANYONE in!! I had a Cannoli and my husband a Macaroon - they were delish!

If you need your sweet tooth satisfied this is the place. It gets busy so plan to wait and check out what goodies you want to buy while waiting. A European flare with the baked goods for sure.

My wife is a keen baker so we had to pop in to sample the local treats and a cup of coffee. Everything looked delicious and the staff were very friendly. I would sample everything if we stayed longer!
