I agree with others who feel that B/C has gone down since the Fellers sold, particularly in the level of service: both unfriendly and slow. Also, in the midst of the am rush, why mostly cookies in the case? There just aren’t a lot of...More

In spite of a change in management, this place continues to charm! Fabulous scones, biscuits, cupcakes, muffins. AND canneles bordelaise, twice baked brioche and croissants!

I love their macaroons! And they have great other pastries too that I don't even know their names. Most people probably go for their coffee too, but I never had it. They also have some takeout sandwiches and pasta that are fresh and convenient. They...More
