Just another coffee shop. Nothing really special about it. Everything is priced on the high side. Guess you can charge that when you put gluten free/local on most things.

We decided to go there since the reviews for this place were amazing. We tried the Chocolate Croissant and a Prosciutto Provolone. They were waaayyyyy too buttery. You can almost taste the fat out of it, so it wasn't what we expected at all. My friend couldn't finish her chocolate croissant and same thing for me with my Prosciutto. Juliens... More

I have visited twice in the past two weeks. Once with hubby, once with a friend. I cannot believe I missed out on this spot for so many years! Its' funky/artsy vibe makes for a casual get-together place for coffee or lunch. Upstairs, they have the most wonderful sandwiches and a couple of soups and salads. You order, then wait... More

It's hard to believe this cafe is turning 5 in a few days...I was there when they first opened. It's a true gem in the neighborhood. Their croissants are massive and oh so scrumptious as are their cookies and muffins but you need to get there before 1pm as their food doesn't last long! If you love a cappuccino prepared... More

Very eclectic cafe. Clientele ranges from business people, students, Moms and babies, and seniors. This is a very welcoming environment, but has limited seating. The almond and almond croissants are the best I have ever tasted.

We have been frequenting this café since it first opened. The cookies are huge and the chocolate croissant are magic with either a cup of coffee or tea. Great size and easily plenty to share with a friend, family member or spouse. Whether you eat inside, outside or take the food with you everything will be marvelous. This is a... More

One of the things that I enjoy the most is fresh pastries. Through my travels, I always eye pastry shops and try as many as I can during my trip. I travelled extensively around North America, Europe and the Middle East, and to my at most surprise, one of the absolutely best pastry shops i have ever tried, was right... More

Whenever I'm in Dartmouth I try to make it here for espresso and a treat. While I've never found the service to be outstanding (I am perhaps not quite trendy enough to warrant more personalized service), the huge, amazing, chocolate croissants are enough to give this place 4 stars all on their own
