You look into the big cases and see one Great pastry after another. Trying to choose is a morning dilemma. The almond pinwheel beat out the bear claw of my visit six years ago. The mocha was great. The service was outstanding.

We were expecting a great spot for breakfast. However the food and service were just average. We had a group of four and we all had the same thoughts about this place. The bakery looked and smelled great.
