“The best hot chocolate.”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This is my very favorite coffee shop. I try to pop in at least once a week for their hot chocolate which is the best I have ever had anywhere. I also love the apple nougat tarts and the fruit tartlets. In fact everything coming out of their kitchens is totally divine.

“Nice cake, feeble service”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

The cakes and pies are delicious. Unfortunately the service is not at the same level, they seem very unmotivated and dissinterested.

“Delectable Pastries!”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

We stopped in for a coffee while walking around the area and found a delicious looking selection of pastries & goodies. They were delectable, delicious and the coffee was very good as well, a nice stop.

“Saturday afternoon”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Arrived two hours before closing time. Disappointed with the limited choice available. However, we had a good cup of coffee each with a citrus cheesecake (not tart enough for our taste) and the last chocolate brownie,which was great. People let coming in even though the window display was bare. Sign of a good reputation. We'll be back, albeit earlier in the day.
