Aside from the good food and freshly baked pastries, this place offers a community center feeling. A schedule that includes an occasional dinner, music, films, and art classes...all part of this eclectic place. I had Chicken Pot Pie and it was delicious. My friend had...More

Delicious breakfast yesterday. French through and through and some of the best croissant you will have in the city. The omelets and other egg dishes were delicious and our group enjoyed the friendly vibe. This will now be my new go to spot for coffee.

This cafe had great selections for our breakfast fare. The quiche of the day was very good and the pastries were delicious. We enjoyed sitting outside as we had a puppy with us. However, we were surprised no one came out to check on us...More
