Pre-covid, my friends and I would have a table and hang out while ordering drinks and snacks for a couple of hours. Now I stop by to grab pastries and desserts for tea time at grandma's - her favorite is the Leek (+ Spinach and Feta?) Croissant! The Lemon Tart is my favorite but the special Strawberry Champagne Heart Cake was quite good. The baristas are always patient and helpful; sometimes it can get pretty busy but it's always worth the wait!

Came specifically for the coffee, which ended up to be pretty mediocre. However, I did try a slice of their tiramisu and it was perfect (would definitely get that again if I was in the area). As for the coffee, you're better off getting your fix somewhere else.

Finally a place that ACTUALLY SPECIALIZES in coffee, (and not milk and sugar?)The level of roast is slightly lighter so you will perceive a bit more acidic taste.The macchiato is actually small to appreciate the full flavor of the coffee and not added milk and sugar.They bake and make their own croissants and pastries in the morning. I didn't get any this trip but the cinnamon bun and croissants looked really good.
