    Nice little shop to grab a great pastry and some decent coffee. Small, so don't plan to hang out, and they close at 4pm so get in in the morning!

    The lunch menu here is delicious. I'd recommend taking your food to go though. The small dining room gets crowded quickly.

    Chocolat croissant, canele, cappuccino, and amazingly delicious chocolate espresso cake. Many thumbs up

    I believe that chocolate chip cookies should absolutely not contain nuts, and Proof gets that. Warm, soft, salty, and rich in chocolate, theirs is a winner.

    Believe the comments about the croissants - had a ham and cheese this morning that rocked my world. So flakey and buttery. Latte was tops - wishing I had gotten 2. Friendly, authentic hipster crowd.

    There's an off-menu drink called "the Winston." it consists of 4 shots of espresso, whole milk and agave nectar, served over ice. It tastes like a Vietnamese coffee. Which is to say, delicious.
