A Folsom treasure. Delicious pastries, coffee, and other treats. Located right downtown Folsom, its a great place to stop for breakfast or lunch. So many varieties of pastries, its sometimes hard to choose, but that is a good problem to have. Recommended.

The hot food is great. The pastries are good but not great. The wait time is abysmal for what you get. The staff is extremely unfriendly. And it's over priced.
