It may be a small, eccentric place (check out the upstairs), but it's packed with great cheeses and wines and truly excellent homemade pastries and breads. The sandwiches are the best in town, definitely not mass-produced. Service is slow but that's a reasonable trade off for the quality of the food. Parking is 50 cents per hour, not exactly a deal breaker.

I have visited this establishment total of 6 times. The food is just okay. It is not great by any means it's just different. The prices are outrageous. But I would have kept on going back, as I like to support small and local businesses, if it wasn't for this one problem: on all of my 6 visits, I observed the owner become rude and raise their voice. 4 times it was at their employees (made one cry) and twice, a customer was targeted! But I went back one more time and it happened to be 5 minutes before opening. The owner was standing at the front door which I tried to pull open. It was locked and he just stood there and angerly pointed at a clock. Well, don't worry, I won't be coming back anymore, early or at all.

Went in to get something different. I had to pay to park, which is definitely not a plus. Had to wait on my food and watch the clock because I had to keep feeding the meter.

You order your sandwich AND THEN they start making it. This is not McDonalds. This is not fast food. This is a real-honest-to-god European bakery. If you ever find yourself in, let's say France, try to get off-tour and go to a real bistro and order a sandwich - you will not be served said sandwich immediately - you will have to wait. If you want a sandwich on baguette which was baked the same day (I understand that baking starts at 3 am or so) you will love this place. The bread sell out quickly so grab a loaf when you walk in.

Breakfast and coffee, apparently, but not during normal hours. Had to pay to park to discover they had arbitrarily decided not to open until 10.
