i've enjoyed their madeleines, fruit tart and chocolate mousse cake. Their hot chocolate is not hot enough and I do not recommend the chocolate lava cake (it smelled synthetic and weird after it was warmed up). However, most of their desserts are pretty good and its a nice post dinner desert shop especially on a date.

Try this for a wonderful treat of pastries. The only problem is that it closes early, so not good for after the theater or a movie. Best deserts in town.

Great croissant sandwiches and treats. They have a second location in Eastwood Town Center behind the NCG Theater. Great place to stop.

This little coffee/pastry shop has the best hot chocolate. It's the kind of hot chocolate that you imagine the children on the Polar Express drink on their way to visit Santa Claus. You will need to drink water afterwards it is so rich and full. This hot chocolate is amazing. I also love their croissants. These croissants make my day... More

I've been coming here since they opened in 2008. They have awesome flavored lattes, and the brewed coffee is superior to the chain stores. They have a wide selection of pastries, and they're all great. We always order our birthday cakes from here. The staff are always friendly and efficient. Everyone here works hard to make sure you have the... More

Best croissant that I have ever had. Even better than ones I have eaten throughout Europe. They are freshly baked each morning and are out of this world. Espresso is also excellent.

We stopped here for a quick snack. It's your average local coffee shop. I ordered the Mint Chocolate Mousse (pie?) and my daughter ate the Chocolate Chunk Toffee Bar. We had Hazelnut brewed coffee to drink. I also picked up a couple of fruit tarts, an apple pastry, and a blueberry turnover to take home. The mousse was good, but... More

Extraordinary pastries, artistic, freshly made, delicious. Coffee is also excellent. Atmosphere is nice, although it is occasionally difficult to find a seat with all of the studying students.

Bought several pastries to go for my mum here: small cakes, tarts, cookies, Madeleines… She loved them all.
