We had a sit down midday meal. The server was fine and polite and ultimately apologized for the time it took to get food BUT it shouldn’t take a kitchen 45 minutes to serve basic food. And it came out one plate at a time.

Always prompt and friendly service. Food is freshly prepared and the bread and pastries are very good. ( no saran wrapped sandwiches) and the coffee is very good. I like this place!

Cappuccino was excellent. Also had a croissant which was good, although not the best/flakiest I’ve ever had. Would recommend for a quick takeaway breakfast, plus they also have plenty of seating.

If you're looking for a quick bite on your way to a show at the Walnut Street Theater, this is a good option. Food is decent, but not overwhelming. My husband's soup was served cold and our waitress seemed in a mood.More
