AMAZING treats! Scones were moist, fluffy, and the shortcake was to die for! Sat on the sidewalk by myself and ate it after my sister left for the airport, and was bombarded by hungry eyes walking by. Felt like I was gloating and eating the best treat ever!

We stopped by this morning while strolling on Venice Avenue with our Bichon. They have shaded tables in front where we had Tea Chai Lattes and Strawberry Croissants with enough whipped cream to be slightly decadent. The Bakery also turns out all sorts of baked goods and the breakfast menu is quite extensive. Murphy enjoyed his dish of water and... More

I've been here several time with my family for breakfast and this place never disappoints. The food comes out looking fresh and beautiful. Yum!

Oh my, where to start! The fish tacos are by far the best I have had since moving here. Always fresh mahi lightly blackened with great cabbage & mango salsa, YUM! Be sure to save room for the fantastic scones served with English cream, DOUBLE YUM! Very cozy restaurant open only for breakfast & lunch.

This bakery is a little quaint place that's easy to walk by but don't!! They have a nice selection on their menu and you can tell that they take their time making your food. Their bakery items are delicious and all so appealing.

We went for breakfast this morning. Started out with a piece of crumb cake that looked like it rivaled NY bakery crumb cake. This crumb cake was BETTER! Wow was it awesome. The crumbs were very NYish but the cake was way more moist than the usual NY fare. Loved it! My husband ordered a breakfast bowl and it was... More

This small bakery/cafe has the best scones ever. The lemon poppy seed are my favorite. Next would be the raspberry which are loaded with juicy fresh raspberries. The scones are most and loaded with flavor, the lemon have a sweet glaze over the top which is so good.We love to sit out front order tea and enjoy the scones. I... More

Walk in and just try to choose from all the good things in the pastry case. Lemon squares, 3 kinds of macaroons, and my sister's favorite the scones, best she has ever had. I have loved anything I have ever tried here.

I took my family here for lunch. All five spoke highly of their meals. I had the quiche, side salad and coffe. Others had BLT plates, chicken salad and fruit salads. We sweets from the bakery for deserts. Our server was pleasant and very accomodating. The ham and cheese quiche was very unique. It was served in a rectangular crock... More
