I was about to order a Madeleines when the baker recommended “the best croissants in New England.” So expectations were set very high as I switched my order. Lo and behold, I am something of croissantaseur and these may in fact be the best croissants...More

Great place to pick up breakfast and pastry snacks for the day. Wide selection. Small seating area inside was packed at the weekend so we just bought and went to the harbour. Coffee also very good.
