Visited last night after dinner. Had some cookies for dessert with coffee. Nothing quite as good as our favorite bakeries in Manhattan or The Bronx but was only a few blocks from dinner.

The place was packed when we went. It was a Holiday weekend. We spent $42.00 on a box of cookies and 3 Cannolis. The cookies were good. The Cannolis were not very sweet, and certainly not the best ones I've ever had. We probably won't go back. The prices were just too high.

We went here with some friends of ours who are Italian and recommended it to us (already a good sign). While there, a group of four women was seated behind us speaking animatedly in Italian (also a good sign). So, it was a sure bet we were going to get some good Espresso, Cappuccino and sweets. In fact, we weren't... More

Its a small place that has very good pastries and cakes. The staff is not so nice and pretty cold but who care - I love their pastries.

Always a pleasure to have this place so close to where I used to live. I stop here to take 2 boxes of dessert for my trip home in Florida. My wife loves the coffee selection and I love it all. The staff so happy to help you. Bring cash for they don't take credit cards.

We live in New York City and have tried many pastry shops in NYC and Nassau County. We did not feel that they had a ,large selection of pastries compared to others. In fact, half their display case is dedicated to gelato. From the outside, it is very pretty. Parking in and around the area is very difficult. We bought... More

My boyfriend and I live in Spanish Harlem and were in the Williamsburg neighborhood for a painting class. We arrived early and went to a bar for some food and drinks. We had some time to kill so we walked around a little and stumbled upon this bakery. There were so many cakes in the window and that's what grabbed... More
