  • Vanilla caramel latte with home made caramel is the best caramel flavored coffee I've ever tried.
  • Chocolate Indulgence cookie is incredible.
  • Say "hi" to Sarah, she's the sweetest.
  • Overpriced untasty/undercooked/and-yet-toasted(??) pastries. Dirty tables, dirty counter, dirty everything. Truely amazing.
  • The turkey sandwich with goat cheese and caramelized onion jam is amazing!
  • The crepes are mouth wateringly good... prices are high, but the food is good
  • Try the lemon bars! I LOVE them!
  • Get here before noon for tasty French omelettes.
  • The Ruben sandwich is pretty good, and the chocolate croissants. I don't know what's up with the "Hipster" tag unless it's referring to me, and I barely qualify.
  • They make the best cinnamon rolls I've ever had in my life. I'm not exaggerating. Have one with a cappuccino and a newspaper on a lazy Sunday and you're in heaven.
  • Mediocre drip coffee but good pastries!
  • Great coffee and breakfast sandwiches ... try the mushroom, gorgonzola and arugula.
  • Salad portions are generous. Very yummy, healthy options.
  • Chocolate babka muffins. !!!!!!
  • Crepes are amazing
  • Got an omelette and latte! They serve them all day long. The omelette came with sour dough toast and raspberry jam. Lovely time sitting in their outside seating.
  • Sometimes they have extra cookies and scones for free! And if they are out of short cups, you get a tall one.
  • Best coffee in town. Strong and smooth.
  • The savoury crpes are to die for. They also have excellent fresh bread.
  • The fig salad is awesome.
