    Definitely try earl grey waffles and MN cookie. By the way, their granola was delicious too (And I truly don't care for granola in general).

    I'd take a picture but I already devoured the quiche I ordered - taste and presentation were first class. The staff, ambience, and the vanilla latte are great too. I'll definitely come here again.

    I'd take a photo but I already devoured the quiche I ordered. It tasted amazing (best quiche I've ever had) and the presentation was first class. The staff, decor and the vanilla latte are also great.

    Decent espresso, but their iced lattes are watery. I feel like it's a bit pricier than other coffeeshops as well. I come here more for the lovely ambiance.

    Everything in the bakery case is amazing but the bacon gruyere scones might take the cake. Oh, and they also make delicious cakes.

    Brief menu. Not much cleaning of tables. Absurdly small water glasses. Long-ish wait for food. Kinda spendy considering there's no table service. Both items from brunch menu very, very tasty.

    Belly, A nice name for the rewards program. If my points continue to add up, I could get a good discount on lunch and/or dinner. Something to keep in mind.
