It was very pricey for the food amount and type. The coke was a tiny glass bottle and if you get refills your charged, $1.49/coke. The garden tuna melt was good and the price was normal for it. The macarons were awesome but WAY overpriced for 3/$7.50 or $7.00. By no means does it cost anywhere near that to make.... More

I have been going to this place for years and they never disappoint. I bought a whole blueberry pie for my husband and he was thrilled.

Third visit to this bakery. Kept going back because the very expensive overpriced desert items are somewhat tasty. But each time I have gone in there, the staff is just down right rude and acting like they are doing me a favor. Only thing really that impressive is the fact that the owner was able to find so many of... More

OMG...is about the best way to describe this bakery. The pastries and bread are as good as any we've had throughout Europe! The coffee is exceptional as well! We actually go out of our way to stop and bring pastries home when we travel to Birmingham, it's that wonderful! Parking for us has always been a breeze, but I can... More

Stopped in after a great meal at Chez Lulu next door (businesses are related). Selection looked okay, we bought a handful of items to take on the road because we had an early start he following AM. If not eating it right away, stick to items that are meant to be a little crispy; these pastries are clearly made quite... More

Stumbled upon this treasure while walking in the English village. Prices were quite high- but the cookies we had were delicious. The ambience in the little bakery was welcoming. Can't wait to go back! ( the worker bees could have been a little friendlier, but the place was so cute and quaint and the cookies so memorable, that I won't... More

Went here with my family for pie to celebrate Father's Day. We tried several of the pies including the blackberry, the peach, and the apple. Was first disappointed that our slices of pie were taken from prewrapped pieces instead of the beautiful pies in the display case. The second disappointment was the small size of the blackberry pie slices compared... More
