A quirky french style place with nice food. We dined here for breakfast on a weekday morning. It was very busy and is clearly a popular place. I think the decor could do with a little revamp though. There were rows of delicious looking pastries of all types lined up on a table and hot food options to order at... More

We went there for our anniversary in 2008. The waitress botched the whole meal then brought dessert and didn't return for 20 minutes to see that she didn't leave us any forks to eat it with. We never returned after that.

They serve breakfast items until 3pm. The ham and Swiss was really good, complimented by a fresh, sweet fruit cup and toast. Cooked perfectly. The pastries looked devine.

What a cute place! Pre-made food, bakery dishes, quick line. Loud inside, but great to grab and go. Would definitely go again!

The bread is the best, and smoked salmon for breakfast could not be better! Very interesting menu and 2 doors down from The Cheese Shop! Be sure to pack a carry out bag as all is wonderful.

The products here are very good. My wife and I stopped in for breakfast, but left with pastries. She had a cinnamon roll and I had a cream cheese danish. They were both excellent. The downside is how busy it is, so getting a table is difficult.

I had the eggs with quinoa and black beans and a chocolate crossant, she had the eggs with assorted vegetables and a pecan roll. The eggs were perfectly done as were the quinoa and beans, her breakfast... More

What an great place. I love it when I see the owner working hard, helping customers, and the place is jam-packed. It shows how much the owner cares about his place. LOVE this place.

What a beautiful and immaculate little restaurant. Very, very small, wonderful baked goods, meals are limited but delicious. Staff friendly. Nice presentation of food. Went there twice on our trip just because we were so impressed.
