Love this place. I live in Maplewood, so I go all the time. It makes me feel like I'm on vacation in my own town! The coffee is excellent (they have some super expensive coffee machine)t and the cupcakes and other pastries are delicious. The design is small and adorable and seems from a different era. They use Fiestaware and play great music and have some single and communal tables indoors and out. They also have wifi. During the week you can hang out and read and pretend you are in Paris or acting in some romcom.

This is a well loved place and great for baked goods and expresso or regular coffee. The atmosphere is great. However, since they renovated, it almost seems less place to sit, and people have taken to camping out at tables - even leaving their stuff at tables for 3/4 people to sit. So recommend take out only. Can pre- order cakes, pies and more.

One of the few local places to get a great GF baked good, and, always, fabulous coffee. Non-GF items are great too, especially the very buttery coffee cake.

Wonderful neighborhood place with a small town feel, great baked goods and delicious coffee. Soft, eclectic music in the background and a feeling of warmth and relaxation.
They have a delectable banana bread that's gluten free too.

I was blown away by the quality and flavor of the cupcakes! Other things are top rate as well. A welcome addition to the area.
