I meet friends here regularly because the sweets are sooo good and the coffee is great too. They have a lovely sidewalk space in good weather and the inside is well decorated and fresh. You can buy a loaf of bread to take home too.

I visited this outfit twice in October. Service was iffy on both occasions with either princess waitstaff types or just not particularly interested in working there. I mean, if I want rude and condescending attitude I can get plenty of that at places whose food...More
