Nice neighborhood bakery with delicious pastries and coffee. Not a large choice of egg dishes though. Quick service and nice and clean and bright. I would go again.

The best sticky buns ever. They serve sandwiches and soups as well however nothing can compare with pecan sticky buns. It’s something incredible. Usually it’s gone to 12pm so highly recommend to visit this place for breakfast or early lunch

Awesome meringue (almond) and coconut cupcake; good coffee. Loved this place and the employees were very friendly. Will definitely return when back in town to try some of the other great looking desserts/pastries.

Popped in for a quick breakfast, had sandwiches, a Boston cream pie and a pecan bun. All was fresh and affordable, but coffee wasn't great.

Friends brought over a box of sticky yeast buns. My face must have said: nobody is going to eat them😂 Well, they were amazing. The right touch of sweetness, nuts and sauce. Excellent for breakfast as well. A little warmed up with ice cream. Yummy!

This bakery was touted as one of the best in Boston. It was average. It would have been nice if the help actually looked pleased to receive business. The prices are a bit steep too.More

We discovered this place by accident and it was a great discovery. The food was quite yummy and reasonably priced. If you want a place where locals go, go to this place.

I am not sure if they serve pumpkin bisque. When I went to the restaurant it was still summer time.
