Excellent food to look at. The difficulty is choosing as they all look wonderful. Suggest choosing several items and sharing.

Stopped in to purchase a few different kinds of tarts - chocolate, brulee', Choc & hazelnut. I found the choc one too heavy for me but hubby loved it. Loved the brulee' and will go back to try the other varieties.

A group had Saturday brunch here. Such a popular place there were people queued right thru the cafe to buy bread and other goodies. The staff did well to handle the crowd. Would be better if the sit down and take away areas were separated.
