Very busy place and had to wait in a line up to order and wait after our food to get a table. The coffee and the backed goods are great, however you need to allow for extra time.

Although this is basically a bakery they offer a limited lunch menu. Croissant "sandwich was very nice. Choices are fairly limited but seem to appeal to the always very crowded lunch crowd.
