    Yes, excellent coffees and French bread and pastries, albeit a very limited menu. Their croissants and pain au chocolat are without compare in these parts. One quibble: breads are only available at 4pm. What kind of bakery doesn't have fresh bread in the morning? It's Tribeca vibe is also a bit of an anomaly in this rural/blue collar area.

      I've been there once and had the morning bun - AWESOME. My only "complaint" is that the place feels a little too "cool" for me. I feel out of place in there. As vjpam said, it's got more of a city vibe.

        Made the stop and agree that the croissants are fabulous. Also agree about limited menu. I got one of Everything they offered the morning I was there: a croissant, a fig and almond biscotti and a little chocolate sable. The biscotti was prefectly textured with a smokiness that was a great match with coffee. The sable had just the right salt/sugar ratio.
