“Delicious bakery/average cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

The location on the map is wrong, it's directly opposite the Fairmont next to a Mc and Shlick (seafood and steak joint). Blueberry muffin was delicious and the cakes looked divine but the coffee was distinctly average. They do home pressed juices which are lovely.

“Decadence!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We love this place every time we come. The location is ideal, and the place is always bustling. I've been on business, with my family, and with friends. Service isn't super speedy, but the food is delicious and worth the wait. It's lovely to the eye--the pastries are gorgeous, and the place is cozy though a bit noisy (there's nice outdoor seating available, too--it's definitely quieter, more spacious, and more peaceful outside). Especially love the mushroom quiche and the fruit tarts (perfectly flaky, buttery crusts must be their thing!). Incredible mochas (nice and hot!) in the mornings, and to-die-for affogatos in the afternoons. Yes, please!

“Great eats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Great selection of European pastries, felt like I was back in Paris. Very good espresso drinks too. Found it while meeting colleagues at the Fairmont, which is right next door.

“Find the Fairmont Hotel to find this spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We went after dinner for some yummy desserts: chocolate covered strawberry ($2.25), eclair ($3.99), chocolate cup filled wth raspberries ($5.50), curved log shaped almond cookie with chocolate tips ($2.99), chocolate truffle ($2.75): all were exclaiming how delicious their choice was!
