Quaint spot for get togethers with friends and family. Very dog friendly. Delicious coffees with great service. The pastries are sinfully delicious and always super fresh. Wonderful place to sit, relax, enjoy some wonderful treats while watching the world go by.

I think they better just stick to desserts and coffee. I had a dry turkey sandwich with no condiments. It was not cheap either. The place is cute but very unkept and sort of dirty. Looks like a bunch of teenagers are running the joint...More
