  • The only place in C-U area where you can get balkan specials (e.g. burek). I also recommend their delicious pastry and bread, but they still need to learn how to make world-famous Turkish coffee :)
  • Roasted red pepper and feta croissant
  • Go here, get anything. What a great place!
  • Great lunch spot -- 1/2 soup and sandwich is great
  • Bread, pastries, coffee and sandwiches.
  • Don't get the macaroons. They aren't fresh normally.
  • Lord, why is opera cake six dollars
  • Great pastry. They serve Lavazza coffee, but it's hit and miss depending on who makes it.
  • A great place for breakfast or lunch plus an excellent selection of breads. Oh and the brownies are superb!
  • Best breakfast choice in champaign by far.If you feel like you dont have anyplace to get breakfast and you are from the otherside of the planet be sure to check this place out.Desserts are good aswell
  • Dessert, pastries, cookies
  • Good coffee and great bread! Paisano and country style multigrain breads.
  • Everything!! Especially if Lexi is working!!
  • Crepes are pretty good. Staff is helpful when it came to making recommendations for dessert! Mouth watering desserts FYI!
  • One word: breve!!!
  • Great Cuban Sandwich!
  • Free fresh-baked cookie Monday... What's not to love?
  • Great crepes!
  • Cuban is yummy!
  • Their omelets are fantastic! Try the Spinach & Feta: so simple, well-priced, and they really load it chunks of feta.
