I love this place. Reminds me of eating in my Grandma's kitchen. It's small but cozy. I love their homemade goodies, pies, cakes and cookies. I like to sit and have a tea and piece of pie.

We were surprised by the quality of pastries, comparable to many European specialty shops. Breakfast was delicious and well priced. However, the waitresses could be a bit more professional and welcoming.

I enjoyed their cakes but they were actually outshined somehow by the cookies which had the perfect crisp but soft texture.

We had a great brunch on Mother's Day, great baked cakes, pies and pastries. Small local eatery that neighborhood loves. Strictly breakfast and lunch.

If you are in Brooklyn . Walk in here if you want to have the best of the chocolate / Almond croissant . The sheer crunch of the almonds - my favorite and the freshness of it will leave you speechless . The size is pretty big - price most Reasonable . The location is excellent on 7 avenue .... More

went in with a party of 9. Everything was DELISH, the young ladies at the front were very accommodating and my only small complaint was that the raspberry on top of my flourless chocolate cake had mold inside. I wish they still had the raspberry mouse tartlets those were my favorite from YEARS AGO.

Thank Anita D
