In a restored brick building, the decor is modern and stylish. Service is quick and efficient if not overly friendly. On a recent visit, the pastries were crispy on the outside and beautifully moist on the inside. The espresso based frothy milk drink was also nicely balanced.

Note that the counter is for takeout – go in and get a seat first if you want to dine in.
