The food was delicious, fresh, incredible flavor and service. I have found my new favorite cafe and want to go back for a breakfast. The desserts are beautiful and unique. Try the Russian Honey cake!

Excellent bakers. Good morning and sweet breads in the case, and excellent loaf breads displayed. The Swiss bread with seeds is our favorite, but nothing I have samples is less than delicious. Great service and very friendly.
