I buy bread there every week, rain or shine. But God, the other customers are so slow. Please knock down the wall to the next door store and put in 2 registers. The Parking Nazis are always waiting to ticket my car outside.

I love the bread here and would come more often if parking weren't a problem.

First, this bakery is now called "Terra Momo" it seems. That's what the sign was on the front. But it has all the same things mentioned in these good reviews: flaky, Parisian-style croissants that melt in your mouth.
