My daughter and I visited after a My Museum play date and were pleasantly surprised by th options for both of us. My picky eater enjoyed the yogurt parfait and cheese pizza while I had a difficult time choosing between the salami sandwich or the beet salad. I had both. Be sure to leave room for thumbprint cookies or any... More

The Paris Bakery is a great place to go for lunch, or just a cappuccino and a pastry. It's clean, and the service is very friendly. I enjoy stopping here!

Bought a couple of pieces of cake for a birthday. Excellent selection and the 3 we bought were very fresh. Cakes are interesting as some were new to us. The staff was great and described the cakes in detail. If I lived here would be a regular.
