The gluten-free tiramisu was a rare treat for me. The serving was quite generous, so everybody else at the table had a bit. My daughter also had two macarons, which she raved about.

Lots of gluten free options and a vegan cake, although they were a little dry. Excellent coffee! They made me fresh eclairs and they were amazing! I go here every visit to Asheville just for the eclairs.

That...was perfection in a cup. I stood at the counter and enjoyed every sip before returning to the night chill. I was reminded of nights long ago walking home from Cafe Greco in North Beach. Respect.
