This is a lovely bakery, seating very limited inside but lovely outside, with river views. We each had the chocolate croissant & enjoyed a restful few minutes indulging in our treat. The counter service was friendly & gave us great suggestions.

I enjoyed a fruit tart here and the crust was light and not too thick or crusty. It reminded me of bakeries I enjoyed when visiting Europe, particularly a London bakery in the SoHo section.

I have been to France a few times and this place does not come close to what they offer there. Everything looks a lot better than it tastes. No lightness. No flakiness. Hardly any goat cheese in the tart I ordered. What gives?
