We enjoyed our eclair and a great cup of coffee. The eclair was huge! The shop staff was friendly and the shop cute. It was hard to pick everything looked so good.

My wife and I just stumbled upon this little place. What an absolute gem. We had regular coffee, custard filled Bismarck and the best “glazed crossaint” What a wonderful thing. If you try one you’ll be hooked like us!

We are glad you enjoyed our donuts. We are glad you plan to come back. With your dozen donuts that you plan to take home you should also try our Cinnamon bread.

The donuts are absolutely delicious and taste very fresh. You can go in the back and watch some being made as you look through their large variety of coffee mugs. Normally I am grumpy in the mornings, but starting my morning with these donuts and...More
