We had heard this place talked up a lot, but we weren't very impressed. We stopped in for an afternoon snack. We were not impressed with the cupcakes, especially for $3.50! The one we got was smaller than an average cupcake. The mocha baby cake...More

We come to visit friends once a year and make it a point to eat here for breakfast. If you’re lucky, you can sit near the window and watch them making pastries. It is almost impossible to choose what to eat. It all looks great....More

Had brunch here and were so happy we went. As others note, most tables have view through glass of the industrial bakery and the guys making pies, mixing, etc. Husband had egg-quesadilla, which came with black beans - he loved it. Coffee and water came...More
