We like the food here general but I find the portions small for the prices. The breads, jams and sweets are generally good.

Thank momsan

I've been here a couple times; nice ambience, decent food, and good location. From an ethical perspective the waiter didn't know if the eggs were cage free but there are lots of salads for vegetarian options! The interior is probably the best part though, I love all the wood that they use. I was inspired to write a review, however, because on my way out I got a coconut macaroon and I couldn't even bite into it, I had to go home and get a knife to eat it (I was determined) so I definitely won't be getting pastries if their standards accept leaving food out for what felt like a couple days.
