After discovering this little gem near Dupoint Circle, we became repeat customers. Everything in store looks fabulous. We had coffee several times, small latte was about $2.50 which beats Starbuck's and was good. Bakery items we ate were cookies that are huge, fruit tarts, croissants,...More

We went for breakfast on a Monday morning. Although the pastries are excellent and the staff couldn't possibly be any more upbeat and friendly, we did not enjoy our eat-in experience. Too loud, too crowded, too many people. Fair prices, good coffee.

Grabbed a muffin, fruit salad and a hot tea. Quick and friendly service. A few tables to sit down. Close to the Metro and DuPont Circle Hotel. I'd go back.
