    LOBSTER TAIL! Can't get enough of it. There's rarely a line here unless it's summer, then good luck! It seems there are tour buses coming in just for this place. I'll probably still wait.

    The Cannolis & the Lobster Tail!

    The pastry of cream puffs were crispy on the outside and amazingly soft on the inside. Custard cream was meh. Cannolies had a somewhat of a cinnamon taste to it but were also nothing special.

    Tried the lobster tail, red velvet cupcake, famous coffee cake -- all disappointing. Had the pignoli cookies and they were great. Overall, overhyped. Go only if there is not a massive line.

    Overrated and overpriced. Avoid the brownies--sweet and bland. Cupcakes are cold and somewhat dry. Lobster tail is good, but one is more than enough. Go at night to avoid the long line, ~8:30pm.

    Cute shop and admirable family business, but it's a bakery not a flu shot clinic. I stood in line f/ 40mins to get inside and waited another 30mins to order. Worth stopping by, not worth waiting 1hr+.
