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
