great for coffe/tea and pastries.

The pastries are very good and can be purchased to go. There is outdoor seating in the warm months and it's a nice spot to meet friends for coffee, etc.

The service was great. My wife asked for a dairy free frothed drink and was accommodated, no problem. My espresso was perfect and the pastry was delicious.

This place offers great sandwiches and pastries, freshly prepared by young learning cooks in a local cooking school. I suggest you taste some of their cakes, they are really nice

This is a downtown spot with indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoors was v sunny and there's no shade, so I say indoors. It's a bit gloomy at all by the front window seats, and rather chaotic and noisy. But the coffee and cheesecake combo was good.

I got a ½ Ruben served to me unwrapped and unheated, and my entire order was handled in a very casual “oh who cares” manner.
