We grabbed a sandwich here and took it with us to the brewery that is nearby. Friendly staff, who will try to help you in English. Pastries and desserts are little pieces of art.

If your hotel is close by here, definitely have breakfast here. I found the pastries much better than Paillard and there are no line-ups!

We ordered the ham and cheese croissant, smoked salmon Panini, tomato soup, and a latte. The ham and cheese croissant was delicious and the tomato soup was fantastic. We walked 20 minutes to get to this bakery and it did not disappoint.

The pear and chocolate pastry was excellent. Very buttery with just the right amount of salt and sugar to enhance the flavors. The cappuccino was good as well, but not exceptional. They also had sandwiches with cheese melted on top that looked sinful, but I...More
