If one has an overwhelming sweet tooth for European style pastries, you found your Nirvana. Eclairs, Rum Balls, and much, much more which you'll want to try them all. If you desire something a little more savory, a variety of sandwiches are available too. They do coffee as well, however, do not expect that "S" place but with the desserts... More

The pastries are phenomenal, the quiet atmosphere was perfect for me and my wife to sit and enjoy a coffee in the morning. Haven't gone for their lunch meals but it is on my list to do.

So much to choose from! We went in for a small snack, Hubby had a crossant and coffee, I had water and 3 different desserts. All so good. They also have some Greek dishes, for lunch. But the pastries are what I would go for. All of them!!

I have been wanting to come here for a while now and finally went with my best friend. Everything was a good price which surprised me. I ordered a full sandwich, soup, an eclair and expresso and my whole meal was only $12. Everything tasted very good especially the dessert and coffee! I will definitely be back!

Simply the best bakery. Wonderful variety of sandwiches, soups (homemade) and salads. Service is both friendly and efficient. Price are more than fair. But, the variety of pastries and the way the look and taste is just spectacular.

The waitress made no attempt to smile and half apologized for the long delay before taking our order. The soup was tepid and the sandwich was sadly lacking in meat. Next time, if I bother to go again, I'll buy a french roll, take it home and make a real sandwich with more than a measly amount of meat in... More

Thank you so much for taking time and reviewing our establishment! I am so sorry you did not get the quick service you expected when you arrived. I'm glad to hear that she attempted to apologize sometimes being a waitress can be overwhelming. Cheri is usually quite coureteous. I wish you had informed us about the soup, so we could... More

Ate here a week ago and enjoyed a sandwich stuffed with ham and cheese. Came here again and ordered the same sandwich a few days later. Received a paltry amount of ham in my sandwich and an excessive amount of lettuce. Overheard the waitress telling her friend they were running out of ham and cheese. So, here we have a... More

Thank you for taking time to review our establishment. I'm sorry your second visit was not what you expected. We make a baked ham & cheese croissant. We also prepare sandwiches to your specifications, which could include ham (quarter pound of meat) and cheese (of your choice) When you overheard the waitress mention that we were running out of ham...
