    My husband and I enjoyed our lunch so very much. Nice choices on the menu and very reasonably priced. The desserts displayed were works of art. We came back after our appointment to each enjoy one: a strawberry tart and pistachio eclair. Delicious. Can't wait to return.

    Staff was very friendly and engaged. I enjoy options of pastries and candy. Wife loved pink rose made out of hard candy. I had eggs benediction with potatoes and avocados Flavors where there if I had to be picky I would say add salt and pepper to potatoes. Definitely be back
