“When in a rush or just chilling between meetings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2012

Was looking for a Starbucks in the area and ran into this shop.
It is just outside the Rosslyn Metro Stop.
I have never seen a bakery with so many choices in various pastries.
And the espresso was pretty good too.

“Basic deli”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2012

Got basic but tasty sandwiches here while waiting to catch the Rosslyn Metro. Good drink selection. We didn't try them, but they also had pastry.

“This place needs an intervention”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2012

Service is slow or maybe I'm just there at the wrong time (11 am?) and the food looks dried up and curling in the deli counters. I also didn't know where I was supposed to pay and they make you feel stupid waiting to be told to go to the register. AARGH! The prices aren't that reasonable either. This place needs a makeover or something.

“The best source for gourmet cakes.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2012

Pricey but worth it. If you want to make a spash get a Tivoli cake (it's such shame that the restaurant closed a few years ago; it was great). Lunch offerings are good and more reasonably priced but the desserts are what you really go there for.

“As good as ever”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2012

It just keeps getting better. Try the scones although their pastries and made to order sandwiches are just as good.
