“authentic but pricey”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

Cakes are very good but expensive. (Paris by comparison is cheaper.) Cappuccino is only fair and weak.

“Defined what a local bakery should be”
Reviewed 30 August 2012

This is a small but very warm and friendly New Encinitas bakery. If you like pastries, especial those made with lots of butter, you will love this place. The coffee is excellent, especially the latte's. Great place to sit outside and relax when the weather cooperates. This is So Cal, the weather is most always near perfect.

Reviewed 14 August 2012

Love, love, love the yogurt granola parfait. The homemade granola was fabulous! They also had so many wonderful pastries and baked goods! Definitely worth a stop!
