Small cafe in Greenpoint worth visiting. Big selection of pastries, cakes and more. They are good portions and delicious not too sweet priced very reasonable. The place is always crowded with couple of tables along the wall. Big selection of teas.

I've tried several pastries and have not been disappointed yet. It's a small, clean, cozy place, with friendly staff. It looks like a place for senior citizens of the neighborhood to gather. The cafe made a mistake with my daughter's cake order last year. She...More
