“Wonderful little cafe.....nice staff and yummy desserts!”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

I have been going here for several years, taking a leisurely drive up the coast to Los Gatos every chance I get. They are very welcoming and the food is great. I especially like the ham and brie french sandwich, with a side of salad. Very nice.

“Almost perfect”
Reviewed August 8, 2011

I have visited this place a few times in the last few years and more recently a handful of times. While I'm sure it's not good for my diet, it is definitely a treat. The Almond croissant may not really look like a croissant or taste like a fluffy croissant, but it is delicious... and filling. However, funnily enough my favorite part of visiting this place is the freshly squeezed orange juice. The amount of times I have had watered down orange juices or half and halfs at $4 a glass is more than I care to remember. Here, they squeeze it to order and they don't add minute maid or anything else. Simply delicious.
The ambiance is good for a small place and it often seems like they have new staff, but it's definitely worth the visit. Their pain au chocolat is also delicious. It's not too pricey - you definitely get what you pay for. The drinks are priced just right and the food is pricey, but worth it. However, I suggest you go for a hike or engaged in some lengthy retail therapy afterwards in Los Gatos to work off all the calories.

Definitely worth a visit!
