Front counter selling wonderful deserts. The cheese cake is superb. Nice boxes for take out even with a little ice bag to keep things coo. Tea room in the back, spotlessly clean and perfect bathrooms. Recommended

The cakes were unique . The green tea cake was very good and unique. The chocolate cake was light, not too sweet and had a nice touch of walnuts. Each piece of cake is 10 dollars

Superb space, tranquil, kind and quiet waitstaff in this elegant little cafe restaurant. Looks like a cake shop from the front but has a large dining area in back. Reasonably priced menu for such fresh delicious fare and the finest cakes we've had in Manhattan....More
