European bakeries are one of my favorite places to eat at, but since airfare costs a fortune it's hard to enjoy them too often. It's even harder to find a suitable replacement for them in America. A lot of bakeries that boast European quality just...More

Crowded but worth the wait. Super friendly staff. Excellent Bread and fantastic cookies. A great spot for lunch, but also good to get food to go at the counter. Nice choices for vegetarians, there are healthy selections, which can be rare in Kentucky.

Although it was a 20 minute wait even at 11:30, the food was great. I had a very tasty Ruben. It is pretty noisy and not easy to talk unfortunately. Still worth it for good food. And the bread is really special.

Great food, friendly staff. I had the spicy tuna sandwich and it was amazing. Recommend it for any day when you want to eat something good in a great atmosphere.

Great pastries if and when you can get them. Better camp on the doorstep because they DO NOT prepare for demand. Agree with other reviews, service is rather poor.

Great bakery and cafe. They have wonderful pastries and breads. I love every one that I've tried. The kouign amann is to die for!!! The coffee is strong and good as well. The atmosphere is hipster and typical of what you'd expect in this area....More

If you go in knowing that the service is slow, you'll enjoy breakfast here. The egg/avocado/bacon sandwich was delicious, once we finally got it. Best is getting chocolate chip cookies to go!
