Fantastic little patisserie and lunch place for those wanting a touch of refinement and ambiance in downtown bowmanville! A quiet oasis with prompt and courteous staff with a fun selection of cakes and pastries that fill the mind and belly. Coffee and tea here are wonderful!

I love the coffee and adore the cannoli. The chairs in the window are a fun hangout for a rainy afternoon of people watching and maybe some reading. The tables are good to share a chat with a friend during an afternoon of shopping along King.

I have been here a few times. I am a coffee lover and they have many choices. The service is usually pretty good. It's small though, not much seating.

Have just moved to Canada, and loving it, apart from the coffee situation. I've been looking for a good cappuccino and some friendly Canadian service. Unfortunately found neither here. My first rude Canadians at the counter, brusque service would have been an improvement. Four unfriendly and frankly inhospitable. Even if the coffee had. Even good, it would have been soured...

I was a bit surprised to find at 11:30 am on a Saturday the bread and dip for the daily sandwich had already run out. Then my tart was very very stale and the girl replaced it but I was not offered any money back for the cheaper dessert I was given as a replacement. It's hard to maintain high... More

Stop in with my partner in crime to have a tea and a little nibble. The food is fresh wholesome and amazing and the tea was a little bonus.

Few doors down from my work. Come here occasionally for treats & lunch but more often coffee. Lattes are yummy. Buttertarts a bit too sweet for my liking but the soups are delicious! Definitely a nice lunch spot.

Loved this place for sweets when it opened. Something changed though. Cannoli filling became sour, cream horn filling lackluster. Tasted like baking from a grocery store. Display is lovely, ambiance quaint, coffee good. Friendly staff.
