I have been here enough times now to have made up my mind. I don't care for this place. The pastries never taste as good as they look. It's always crowded. The air is stuffy and oily feeling in this claustrophobic oven of a cafe. The coffee is good, but it's just not worth it here. There is one good sandwich too, see below.
|Canele Bordelaise - $2 - A really nice, if indulgent amount of caramel|
Strawberry Chocolate Basil cupcake - $2.21 after tax
Chocolate walnut mudslide cookie: meh
|Honey Walnut Thyme Scone - $2.50 - A pretty hard exterior, not as soft inside as I'd like either, but good flavors|
|Pain au Chocolat: fine|
Orange cardamom sticky bun: Eh, cute flavors but too creamy sweet. I've gotta stop ordering stupid shit just because it sounds interesting.
Crema Chicken Sandwich: tasty flavors there but it's just missing stuff - jalapeños and/or sriracha, some red onion, perhaps. Nicely toasted bread, though, and, again, the right size for a sandwich.
|Americano was creamy and wonderful, not very bitter at all, a mild 9/10|
