    I like coming here because I've never seen it crowded, which makes it a great place to sit down with my laptop. They have some sweet treats to nibble on, as well as sandwiches and beer, if you like.

    Picked up a flourless chocolate cake for a party that was rich, dense and incredibly tasty. It had caramel topping which made it even more brilliant. Only $20, great spot to pick up some desserts.

    The "Sweet Bar" cookies with chocolate are delicious. I also like the peppered turkey sandwich with extra cheddar. Organic, gluten free, and vegan preferences accommodated.

    Their cakes are fantastic. The chocolate one with toffee and salted caramel drizzled on top-- mmm.

    A co-worker recommended the Pork Sandwich and it did not disappoint. It exceeded pork expectations.

    Great cookies. Should have gotten espresso - coffee is watery and not hot enough. I'll be back, the space is, well sweet.

    Great pastries, and a good selection of drinks. Pretty slow wi-fi.

    I love their eponymous sweet bar, without the chocolate. Most would probably call it plain, I'd call it subtle.

    Really spacious & light space to work. Wi-fi available. Blueberry-apple cornmeal upside down cake. Yum! And not too sweet.
