I've had several pastries and love their chocolate cakes! Any celebration- we are there. It is always busy but we manage to find tables. Breakfast choices are plenty.

A Folsom treasure. Delicious pastries, coffee, and other treats. Located right downtown Folsom, its a great place to stop for breakfast or lunch. So many varieties of pastries, its sometimes hard to choose, but that is a good problem to have. Recommended.
