We tried a wide variety of the pastries at this bakery. Every single item was delicious. The young women waiting on customers were friendly and helpful. Wish I could go back soon, especially for the almond pastries

Do not leave town without stocking up on an assortment of pastries and cookies. Helpful, friendly, patient staff will assist you in selecting exactly what you want. Stock up your freezer. This is the best.

Good spot for pastries. Staff is super friendly. Atmosphere was good. There were lots of choices! but all of them are sweet. They don't have anything plain. Wish they had some savory choices too...
