Consistently outstanding macaroons and baked goods. The baked goods look like something from a magazine. The taste is to die for. We have never been disapppinted with any of the selections we purchase. Worth a stop

This restaurant has nailed every detail. The atmosphere is clean and bright, yet cozy. The food is well presented and delicious. The servers are knowledgeable and customer friendly. I even like the very limited menu (keep it simple and do it right).

As my city mates mentioned above, they do indeed. Try the quiches--they are great and served with a side salad! Let yourself be tempted by the lovely parties as well.
