This is one of my favorite bakeries to grab something in the morning. I lived across the street from it for 10 years. You won't be disappointed in the baked goods. I will say, most mornings if you wish to hang out and have your...More

We enjoy the fresh brewed coffee and delicious baked goods for breakfast. Scones, doughnuts, bagels are all delicious. The homemade bread is divine! They have a variety of deserts to choose from as well. Lunch offers sandwiches and homemade sides.

Love this eclectic bakery in the heart of English Village. Great coffee, croissants, and pastries. Stop and take a moment to go in and get some local flavor!

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.

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...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...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...More
