About

We felt not as good as some of the other bakeries we visited. Ginger snaps were good, dipped butter cookie was fair. Everything looks really good though. Cute chocolate hearts for Valentine's day..

Stopped by this bakery as we saw a long queue. We tried the Almond bun and chocolate eclair. Abit too sweet for our taste but generally not bad. Coffee was not too bad.
