Go There!

Great pastry in a nice setting. The kind of place I would frequent if I lived in HHI. Nice service. Wish I could have gone back!

Wide variety of breads and french desserts. They also offer crepes and sandwiches along with a wide variety of beverages. You can sit inside our outside across from a nice park and playground for the younger generation.

Amazing french pastry and bread. The croissants were perfect. I got an assortment and brought them back to the condo. A perfect breakfast.

Excellent in house pastries with a good cup of coffee to boot. A croque monsieur sandwich (sorry if I butchered that, I studied Spanish, not French) is enough for two. Deserts are delightful, portions are huge. They are a bit pricey but considering the quality and portion size of what you get is well worth the trip and the money.... More

Our group of eight ladies " of a certain age" were seated at a high table with chairs the height of tall bar stools. Not the easiest seating arrangement. There are normal height tables and chairs you can ask for, however. Our waitress told us the quiche had just come out of the oven and had not yet set, so... More

We went for lunch twice. The food was good to very good. The lettuce in the salads were wilted and a few pieces were brown on the edges. The portions were small for the price. Service was friendly but very s l o w. I really wanted to love this place, but for now, we will stick to getting their... More

Last time I checked my SAT score, I knew how to read. But the current menu made me doubt my linguistic acumen. "Two crepes for 9.99" actually means "two IDENTICAL crepes for 9.99, otherwise you will be charged 2X9.99'. Who knew both I, and my spouse, who have doctorates, didn't know how to read between the non-existent lines. Besides this... More

I took my husband here for lunch on his birthday. It was our first visit to their new location. And what a location it is. The restaurant itself is easily 3-4 times larger than the original one in Pineland Station. Lots of tables, both inside and outside, attractive country table clothes, nice view of the marsh. What's not to like?... More

Not s much ambience, rather a "cafeteria" type feel. Very austere - original location was much better. Tourists my enjoy this new place but islanders will probably avoid.

Delicious pastries and coffee. Love the location in the new Shelter Cove outdoor mall...great place to start the day or end the day. We ordered pastries but then saw people with hot food...we didn't know that was available (we didn't see a menu at hte counter). Nice staff and reasonable prices. We will be back!
