Cannot fault the ambiance -- very friendly and warm service, great feel to the place, fantastic view. Home cooked and very fresh food. We had lentil soup which was nice, and homemade sausage sandwich which was delicious. Eclairs were great too, as were the lattes.

Worth the short walk up the driveway (if you parked across the street). Homemade bread and pastries but, more importantly, family run...and you can feel that when you enter. Also, more affordable than the place across the street. If you want to feel like you’re...More
