I live in the Hancock and this is the place I go for the coffee. Not only is the coffee great they have a HUGE selection of pastries, cakes and dainties. They also have an Italian deli with meats, cheeses and lunchtime paninis.

Came here for gelato. We tried four different types. None were remarkable. Tried the pistachio, chocolate, salted caramel and one I don't recall at all, The salted caramel was the best, by unanimous agreement.

We shared the pasta of the day with a Greek style salad which was delicious. Only low point was the pastry which was stale! My partners Danish swirl was fine! Coffee was fresh and delicious with a nice area to sit and enjoy the food.
