An eclectic little spot that we love for lunch! They always have a special quiche of the day that is yummy. One of my favorites is their tuna salad, made with homemade mayo. Best tuna ever! Always a special soup of the day also. It's a little local spot. The bakery is one of the best in Cincinnati. The chocolate... More

We stopped in for Saturday tea, and had a wonderful time enjoying pastry, sandwiches, and quiche. The service was very good, and the window seat was perfect ! Be sure to make a reservation beforehand because of limited seating and limited pastries etc. We had a very relaxing hour within- don't miss it!

The cafe is darling. I did not eat in but will certainly plan to go back for that. I did walk through to the bakery. I got several goodies for the family. The opera cream cake was good. I personally didn't think it was quite the home run every one else says it is but my MIL says its her... More

Since, many people just rushed in, all customers need to take the number... More

The best cake in town. Chocolate creamy. My sons requested birthday cake every year since he has been able to ask. Great variety, very rich flavors.

I've been looking for a location to host a bridal shower tea and wanted to try the food and see the tea room. So, I made my beer drinking, football loving, mans man of a husband put on a shirt with a collar and accompany me to afternoon tea today (along with our 3-year-old son). We were both surprised by...

A lot of people swear by this place, and I have been in there and tried some of their confections. They have beautiful cakes and decorated cookies, that is a given. As far as being a gold standard in bakeries, Idk if I agree. Their stuff is ok (I have had their opera cream cake and it didn't blow my... More
