    I have been missing some of my favorite bakeries in New York, and this place will definitely fill the void. The red velvet cake is the best, most moist red velvet cake I've ever had. Cheesecake A+.

    They recently changed the cupcakes. They used to all be visually different & quite unique. Now they are all similar and "normal". I miss the old flavors.

    Got half a dozen cupcakes. They were good but not baked and wired good. And their 6 cupcake holder was craptacular and didn't even pretend to hold the cupcakes in place. I only live three blocks away

    You really need to try the paninis if you are hungry. Fresh and hearty. Also the hot teas are very nice -- infused with florals. Both are a great pick me up.
