Christine L., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Dec. 12, wrote, "Yummy addition to the Heights! Their pastry selection is huge who doesn't want a unicorn cake? Shrimp and grits is very tasty and came out in good time with five big juicy shrimps."
Yelper Jessica G. added, “Very tasty pastries and bread items! Got a loaf of the apple-raisin-cinnamon bread, a cheesecake and a turtle brownie to go! Was super packed for a Sunday around 1:30 p.m. so I took my items to go. ... Will definitely try again but was very pleased at how good the items I got tasted.”
