“Delightful find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Stopped here for coffee and a small pastry. Was pleased to get delicious french-pressed coffee and a deliciously super light chocolate croissant. All the other pastries looked delicious as well.
On street parking was easy to find. Would stop here again.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

At the risk of restating the previous review...the quiche is the best I have ever had! The owner/baker is delightful. The French press coffee was a welcome respite from other restaurants serving overly acidic coffee. The place should be on scribes list!

“Best desserts ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Found this place by chance and so glad we did!!! Amazing desserts. Fully recommend. Also tried out the quiche and the iced tea both of which were excellent. We could make out the food was made by a professional chef and baker

“REAL Food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

An extraordinary selection in this hole in the wall bakery and cafe -- I'm particularly fond of their quiche, a pot of freshly brewed coffee -- that's freshly brewed for each order -- and a slice of Almond Therese for dessert plus some croissant to take home for breakfast.

“Yummy pastry, good drinks.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

Had the quiche (about $6), each is an individual size, the crust was light and flaky. Iced tea and coffee were good as well. Only a few tables, but most of the food is just as good "to go". Owner was a pastry chef at a Ritz - so you're in for a treat!
