“Afternoon tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2011

had my SIL's bridal shower there recently, good service and amazing food. only complaint was that the person who took my reservation told me I could come early to set up. However, when I got there another party was at the big table and the staff had no idea i was coming early. so in the end I had only about 5 min to set up our stuff before the guests arrived.
But the pastries were amazing and I would absolutely go there again!

“great location and ambience for high tea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2011

Love this little cafe!
I'll have to come back for high-tea or brunch.

Great location, great ambience.
The Macaroons were awesome; light crunch on the outside, absolutely chewy and flavorful on the inside.
The green tea cookies were good but a tad too bitter; you could definitely taste the matcha though.
I really liked the cornflake cookies too.

Will definitely be back

THIS Place is SOOOOO CUTE! Its in the trendy venice neighborhood, and has this whole french/princess type of vibe! The outside, looks like your going into a house, and once you walk in where the front yard would be is a table setup! THEY HAVE WONDERFUL MACAROONS, and little french cakes that are soo cute and delicious! The food is great too! Wonderful place to eat and chat!
