Food is good and bakery section is fantastic. Only disappointment is they are no longer open in the evening. We really enjoyed stopping by for coffee and a pastry.

At the time we visited, the selection of pastries was not to my personal liking, but my mama commented that their croissants were very good. I recommend a visit to experience for... More

Food is good a bit overpriced, last I was there you ordered at counter after standing in long lunch line, served your own beverage out of a communal ice bucket and overall service below par. It's popular but for the prices you should not have to wait in line and serve yourself. Their croissants are delicious.

We had the pleasure of having lunch today, excellent! Super fresh croissants for our sandwiches. My cousin had the chef special, she is a local and always takes family there. Another place for a return visit.

The croissants are THE BEST! Pump a mug of coffee, grab a sweet and while the morning away in a relaxing atmosphere.... Feels like I am on vacation.
