We came here after lunch at Warka because we needed a birthday cake for the clan pater. He likes chocolate so we bought the chocolate truffle cake. The frosting was excellent butter cream! Rich tasting with a deep chocolate taste!

Ignore the strip mall exterior. Beyond the glass entrance door you'll find a totally charming bistro with warm brick walls, lofty chandeliers, and cakes, and cookies, and pies, and oh boy what a great place this is! A friend and I stopped here for coffee and croissants recently. There are plenty of tables and chairs to choose from, but the prime seating is a short bar separated from the baking area by huge windows. While we sipped and nibbled, a five layer yellow cake with whipped cream and strawberries grew on one table. On another, a pastry chef deftly twirled cakes with one hand while pressing sliced almonds into the fluffy icing with another. And directly in front of us a pastry artist molded fondant icing into baby shoes with blue ribbons, a tassel for a graduation cap, and endless circles and stars. Watching someone scoop cookie dough from a huge vat using an ice cream scoop was totally mesmerizing! You get to walk past a large display case of goodies on your way in and out, so of course, I got some take home -- delicate macarons in soft pastels, beautiful cut out cookies decorated to resemble spring flowers, and a large chocolate chunky square that I knew hubby would appreciate. Must return soon!
