One of the BEST bakeries I've ever been to. It's become an addiction!!! The almond chocolate danish is beyond belief and the sandwiches are also amazing!!

Only one thing, the waitress was very nice. 20 minutes to get 2 sandwiches and nobody inside..... I took a lemon pie! Not fresh maybe 3 or 4 days in the showcase.... Only disgusting. I really don't understand the rating of this bakery :-(

AIR CONDITIONING!! At 1st sight looks like a walk in bakery but they do have meal service at tables. The Galettes and sandwiches were best brunch we had on trip. Chocolate Almond croissant were so good we bought some for the next morning breakfast. Wait staff were energetic!

We treated ourselves to pastries and coffee here a couple of times whilst staying locally and they were delicious. There was a huge variety of pastries, cakes and savoury items as well - something to suit everyone's taste. Staff are really friendly too!

Food and coffee were great here. Service was friendly. Definitely a competitor to a well known French spot nearby. They have AC to boot!

Just came back from brunch at this place. Found a great selection on menu for breakfast and lunch items. Saw a lot of not so pleased reviews from customers. Surprised about it.
