I've been going here for years. The scones are some of the best in CT. The assortment of breads and excellent coffee is also worth the trip. It is a gem of a place really. My only gripe is as long as I've gone here,...More

Their French Onion soup with cheese is great. It's my go to when the weather is cold. They make really good muffins as well. Always enjoy their blueberry muffin. Coffee decent and hot chocolate is superb. Breads are excellent. Brownies are OK but nothing special....More

Love their salads, fresh and delicious combinations. I think they are a bit pricey but it is a healthful treat. I enjoy their specials but are only offered on week days. Their spinach salad with grilled chicken is quite good.

This place is amazing. I had the most delicious panini here. Not only are the sandwiches so fresh and amazing.... But the baked breads and desserts are fantastic too. Love coming here. Wish they were open later!
