There is plenty to choose from. The soups and sandwiches are really fresh and really really good. Also, they have amazing pastries and excellent fresh brewed Ice Tea!

Popovers are massive......all the pastries looked incredible. I had the eclair which was very fresh and filling. Also great for breakfast, based on the menu choices

We went for breakfast. Everything was good, but they had gluten free popovers!! They also had gf cupcakes, cakes, and cookies. I only had the popover, but all of the other items made me want to come back for a snack later.

I cannot walk past this place without stopping in for something. The cannolis are great, but I like the cream puffs myself. And of course a POPOVER!

This place was a lifesaver! Kept me and my family warm while attempting to explore Market Square during the bitter cold. The popovers are hands down one of the best I've tasted and the maple butter makes it even more enticing. Add to that the...More
