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?

Bakeries can be hit or miss. Every dessert we tried at this place was top notch and delicious. Great place for dessert on a beautiful day and stroll through New Hope.

Hidden gem in an alley in New Hope. Great coffee and delicious pastries. Maybe even nicer if they serve the goods in porcelain in stead of paper cups and plates, for the price they charge you would expect that. Nevertheless all the goods look delicious...More

We haven't been in New Hope for a while and with Mom's no longer there this may be the best place for desert and coffee. Everything we had was good and the staff was very friendly. Worth trying you won't be disappointed. Enjoy!
