Incredible baked goods. Best salad I’ve ever had-arugula and farro. Had to eat every last bite. Also had the best best rice Krispy treat I’ve ever had. Don’t know how they made the marshmallow so soft and the rice krispy so crunchy.

Great pastries - from homey American style muffins to croissants and meringues. Great lower sugar oatmeal cookie. I love their tuna sandwich - your family recipe with elan! And I'm a sucker for hummus sandwich and theirs is the best. Great bread made in house....More

We stumbled upon this while walking around Cambridge. Lovely little cafe with a great menu. I had the egg souffle sandwich without meat - and it was delicious. The dijon mustard with egg and arugula made the sandwich different from anything I had ever tried...More

Had a flat white coffee and breakfast egg sandwich with bacon on monday morning. The flat white is ok; though the coffee could have be made stronger but the coffee bean selection is nice, less acid and provide mild body and texture. The sandwich is...More
