This place is excellent for a pastry and coffee. Plenty of choices, lots of seating and delicious pastries. I got a decaf coffee and it was rich and flavorful. Even with a long line the wait was not bad.

I really only drink coffee with creamer in it. However, my husband left the hotel in search of coffee for us and when he stumbled on this place, he said he couldn’t find creamer. He failed to add milk or sugar. And to be honest,...More
