Try the twice baked brioche with almonds!

Try the twice baked brioche but beware... Sells out quickly in the morning! The scones are great as well! I love the baked goods but the lunch sandwiches are great too.

Very busy but whilst in the queue had time to decide from the interesting sandwich selection, daily soup, quiche, salad offerings and pastries in the cabinet. I had a half roast beef sandwich grilled which added 50 cents to the. 4.95 price. It was filled with horseradish mayo, tomato and arugula. There was a wide selection of sandwiches and wraps....

I am giving highest stars, but remember ... it is not a restaurant. Stopped here for lunch. Husband and I shared a kale salad and a WONDERFUL BLT sandwich -- quality ingredients all the way. It is crowded and it took patience to find a table, but it was worth it. The vibe is busy but pleasant. The prices are... More

Best sticky buns ever...hands down! Coffee was good, also. Would've liked to have had a better idea of what all is offered for breakfast. I saw a great looking lunch menu, but didn't realize that they offered more than what's visable out front until I saw someone else order. But it was still great!

I usually go for lunch at the Clarendon St location. Food is good but the choice for someone gluten and lactose intolerant are very limited. And the worse part is that my clothes smell like I have been next to a stove for the rest of day.

We had breakfast. The choice of pastries and muffins was outstanding. Coffee was excellent. Everything was fresh and tasty --we brought several things back to the hotel. The loaves of bread also look scrumptious. Go there.

Delicious and unique sandwiches and desserts. Great if you need something quick and cheap before a show.
