The pastries are fresh, sometimes even warm, the aroma when you enter is amazing. Busy place, counter service is OK.

I walked by here at night and the smell from the baking was amazing - I had to go and try it. I had breakfast here and it was good. Will be trying it again next time

Good food with outdoor tables which are situated in what feels like an alley. I got the Cuban and fries. It was good and the fires were plentiful and crunchy. I wish the Cuban had more meat. There is a bakery inside the shop with fresh made goodies.

We came here at around 10 on a bright Sunday morning and the wait was 1 hour!

This place is great for breakfast and coffee. Plenty to choose from and good service. Only complaint is seating can be a bit tight even on a weekday.
