I had a read a blog that gave such high praise to this bakery I really wanted to try it for myself. It was a bit of a trek from where I live & the weather was particularly bad that day but it was not a wasted journey. As previous reviewers have mentioned the place is chaotic & the staff are like everywhere, and a tad on the disorganised side, but I had expected this so it more added to the place for me than took away from it. The seating is all really on side of the café so everyone is sitting together in a way so it may not be the ideal place if you want a private conversation, but it's definitely cozy. I chose a serrano ham & swiss cheese baguette, just very simple, but it was so so tasty. The bread was delicious & fresh, it's clear that they put great care into choosing their ingredients as the cheese had a beautiful flavour unlike the plasticy tasting stuff that some cafés usually try fob their customers off with and the butter was real butter rather than a spread. Maybe it was my appetite from walking in the rain but I really think they made such a simple sandwich really delicious by just making sure they chose high quality ingredients. It's the perfect place to go if you're on your own as it's such a busy atmosphere you can happily sit there & take in all the goings on of the customers, the mad staff & see into the bakery where it is all happening, and if you get bored with that you can just stare at all their mouthwatering pastries. I would definitely recommend bring some change as you can also purchase breads, cheeses & preserves from their deli - impulse buy central! Do also expect to be waiting for a table, and for a menu, and then to get your order taken, in other words don't go in a hurry but don't let that put you off!
