“OK bakery, good brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

The bread is OK; but brioche and tarts are very good. We had a brunch there on Saturday, and the food was fine. The brunch selection is large. In general, it's a good place to keep in mind, but nothing particularly impressive, especially considering the fairly high prices they charge.

“Delicious Food, Snobby Service, Ridiculous Prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

My husband and I have been coming here periodically for the last couple of years and made the decision to make yesterday's visit our last. Why? We see no reason to patronize a place, neighborhood-local and charming as it may be, for food served with a snobby attitude and at gouging prices. Really - $7.50 for an egg, cheese and ham sandwich at a bakery counter? And if one requests the sandwich without the meat, then it's still $7.50 for an egg and cheese sandwich at a bakery counter?

On the positive side, their breakfast items and coffees ARE delicious; just know what you are getting for your money.
