I love the quiche. The crust is exquisite, and the filling is marvelous. Of course everything else I've tried is also quite good. The lunch combos are great, the pastries are oh-so- delicious and yum. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is open...More

We had Ken's "Hero" on soft crusty ciabatta where the hint of olive oil blended heavenly with the pickled dressing and deli meat. The egg salad on pain rustique was perfect. Two half sandwiches for a great price $8 total.

I went here after seeing that they were nominated for a James Beard award, and I am so glad I went by. Their bread is amazing as are their pastries. I highly recommend the blood orange macaroon and canneles.

Call in here to get a unique taste of a range of breads. The loaves are all hand made and your choice may not always be available. There is also great coffee and a range of pastries and sandwiches.

The only reason I don't give 5 stars is I walked in to see these huge cinnamon rolls, ordered one and opened the sack and this roll was so small it could have been a child's portion. Disappointing, but it was delicious. Seating is limited...More
