(The apricot tart was delish but sllliiighhhtly under baked, but not a biggy)The berry coffee cake was great as well, Creme Braille was just as it should have been - creamy, with moderate flavor of vanilla and hard candy top ;)The organic strawberry tart a bit sweet for my taste, but … Full review

  • Rating: 3.0 out of 5"Jun 15, 2014 · by Mark R. from YelpMediocre espresso (good crema, watery body), no free wifi. Seating is good, especially for laptops. Decor is over the top, as if they're trying too hard.Can 't comment on the food, or other drinks, but a proper espresso shot is the base of most cafe drinks, so I don 't have high hopes. Full review
  • Rating: 4.0 out of 5"Jun 13, 2014 · by Adi F. from YelpMy friend and I like to come here after work for a glass of wine and olives. It makes us feel classy and gives us something to instagram about. The wine is great, and you can't go wrong with olives. Usually the service is really friendly and positive. The last time we were there it was less than that, but we like the place too much to give up on it just because of that. Full review
  • Rating: 2.0 out of 5"Jun 10, 2014 · by Sally C. from YelpI want to like this place. The baristas do some nice "coffee art" so the drinks look pretty, and the croissants are some of the best I've had in the US. But ... I find the staff strangely hostile. Their coffee menu uses very specific terminology, and they will give you a hard time if you don't speak their language. … Full review
  • Rating: 4.0 out of 5"Jun 06, 2014 · by Leslie H. from YelpI had several bites of a caramel chocolate tart that was unlike anything I've ever tasted before. This alone would warrant a visit, and this is without even trying their entire variety of hot chocolate drinks. The caramel chocolate was like a cross between a pudding and the meltiest, gooiest caramel candy you've ever … Full review

Going on the last client recommendation that I should at least try and make good here. So jaywalk over and check it out.Ambiance: Your usual standard cafe with sidewalk seating as well as inside. There's an upstair section kinda hidden must … Full review
  • Rating: 4.0 out of 5"May 30, 2014 · by Michelle V. from YelpStopped in here for "coffee"...I'm putting quotations around that because I'm not a coffee person due to the sheer fact that caffeine puts me straight to sleep. But I DO enjoy the taste and smell of coffee. :)Anywhoos!This spot is very interesting! Their menu is super fanciful and I like the fact that … Full review
  • Rating: 5.0 out of 5"May 30, 2014 · by McKenzie L. from YelpGreat coffee and lattes, friendly service, and the food is delicious! They have a Happy Hour on Fridays with yummy appetizers. I have been going here for many years. I prefer this place over Coupa, Peets, Starbucks, and Philz. A great place to meet friends. Full review
