  1. I love their walnut raisin flutes and I really like the crispy, sugary waffles.

      2. I love the hummus/blk bean sandwich, the croissants, and the iced mint tea but everything that I've had there has been good.

        1. their gazpacho soup that they have during the warmer months is really tasty!

            Agreed, gazpacho is divine. Also love their banana chocolate chip muffins.

              their gazpacho is by far some of the best around. the only other kind i had that was on par was at Gordon Ramsay at the London Hotel. I did the tasting menu which started of with an amuse bouche that was a watermelon gazpacho. AMAZING.

            2. egg salad. it's not loaded with mayo, capers & an anchovy, cucumbers .... very good. my fav.

              1. My favorite thing from them, is the Belgian brownie. It's perfectly moist.

                  I agree the Belgian Brownie is great, in my opinion one of the best chocolate things in the city. (wash it down with a chocolate shake from City Bakery!)
