I saw that this morning, but didn't have a chance to go in. I look forward to the sandwiches! Has anyone tried the pastries? TEA. PASTRIES. YES. EXCITED.
Also, added the new location into the DB.

I had a chocolate croissant on Sunday. Not impressed. It was more like a brioche. It wasn't flaky or buttery and had just a bit of chocolate in it. I'll make the trek to Bonjour Brioche for chocolate croissants.
Less excited now. Like TOveggie, I found the croissants to be bready. No flaky crust, no shatter. Avoid the flaky things. Even if we attribute to weather, you can tell quickly by just looking that they're just not right.
I liked the custard of their Portuguese tart, though it needs more black/blistering. Pastry of it was meh.
I did enjoy their cake things - had a raspberry blood orange and would consider one of those again!
I have a steak pie that I'll report on later. That's for lunch.
