    The coconut macaroons were excellent!

    Skip the traditional cupcakes in favor of the specialty filled ones for really nice, moist treats

    Don't get the vegan chocolate chip unless you're a vegan. Do get the blueberry lemon scone. Unless you hate life and good things. Then don't get it.

    Nice to have coffee in a real ceramic mug, but it's hard to find a seat inside. I think all these people must live here.

    Sometimes if you go right before they're closing, they'll have specials on the cupcakes so that they don't have to throw them out.
