“Sweetness everlasting...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

The assortment of pastries is beautifully displayed and even better- tastes delicious. I was tempted by everything. It was so hard to make a choice. The coffee was free with a purchase. Great idea to go there after a movie, or stop after a shopping spree for one final splurge. The very new, sleek serving and wait area has another treat beckoning you to check out. The staff is very friendly and patiently waits for you to make up your mind.

“Sweet Tooth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

First impression was Wow. Lots of pastries, cookies and cakes. The added balcony overhead from the function room added to the Italian feel. The prices are not cheap but normal for this level of pastries. I loved their cannolis. Great place for a weekend break. Grab a goodie, free coffee and relax.

“Great Treats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

I stop in often to pick up treats to bring when gathering with my girlfriends. We are never disappointed. I've also purchased their birthday cakes and been very happy. I don't however recommend the coffee. The espresso is overpriced and the regular coffee is bitter and tastes old.
