Fabulous bakery, great coffee!

We enjoyed dining outside at this restaurant in the charming historic district of Redwood City. Morning coffee and pastries excellent and the people who work there are very pleasant.

Three words... Macaroons, Macaroons, Macaroons!! Plus the Chicken Salad and Iced Tea. This is a great place to go as a couple, as a family, or with mom's groups.

I went here for lunch and got the salmon baguette. It was very good and came with mixed green side salad with herb dressing. Dressing was a bit creamy for my taste, but still good. They are also known for their macaroons, but I did not order one. Their Americano coffee was decent. Overall, I would go back, but a... More

Loved their coffee and their sandwiches. I recommed their vegetarian sandwich. It's a very nice lunch spot.

Flake croissants of almond, chocolate, or ham & cheese; brioche, Mille Feuille, macaroons, tarts, and other delectable french pastries, along with a steaming cup of coffee. A great sidewalk cafe right near the train station.

I go here fairly regularly to pick up half a dozen pastries for my staff. My trunk smells like a bakery by the time I get to work. These things vanish in minutes. My staff is completely addicted. It also serves up a very good latte with whatever milk preference you may have including soy. The service is always friendly... More

The moment we stepped in, we should have been warned. One of the ladies preparing a sandwich sneezed hard onto her arm... an arm hardly covers anyhting ... and promptly continued her food preparation ... gross!!

The Mango- Passionfruit Cake is probably my favorite cake of all time. It has coconut custard, mango, and passionfruit flavors. Light, but rich in flavor.
