“Good Way to Start Your Morning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

We always stay nearby around the corner at the Marina Motel, and found this neighborhood bakery years ago and frequent it on almost every visit to The City. The breakfast pastries are first-rate and I would recommend either the ham & cheese croissants; the bear claws -- or better yet -- the individual quiches (the sausage & spinach combo rocks!!), however you need to get there early because they disappear fast.... It is busy in the AMs -- so expect service to be less than prompt somedays while you wait your turn -- but rest assured of quality.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We came here in the early morning for coffee / espresso and a variety of breakfast pastries. Everything was delicious and well priced. Great stop if you are staying in this area.

“Good Coffee and Pasteries”

It was open early with the smell of good coffee enticing you to call inside.The pasteries were freshly baked and complimented the coffee. The prices however seemed a bit higher than a similar bakery

“Great Pastries, Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

This is a nice little bakery. The scones are delicious and the coffee is good. The people behind the counter were warm and friendly. We liked it so much we came back a second time on our recent trip.
