    Excellent espresso, great foam; owner said all baked goods (other than the croissants and bagels) are house-made and the ones we tried were exquisite. Scones were made with butter and cream, not Crisco, and you can tell - they melt in your mouth. They are light and short, just the way the should be. Our group pigged out the day it opened and liked everything from the oven: toasted and buttered coconut cinnamon bread, lemon cookies were crisp and buttery on the outside and chewy on the inside, dense fudgy brownies made with good quality chocolate, friands (small-ish almond cakes with fresh raspberries in the batter), and a few other items from the menu. Delish. Poached eggs/toast/spinach combo, breakfast strata were both good. The frittata breakfast panini was a little thin on the tomato and ham, but good flavor and great crisp texture - not greasy. House made organic jams, good kids menu. Kid-friendly - high chairs, books, small wicker chairs and two upholstered rocking chairs. Friendly service, though they need a little time to get their act completely together. Not fair to judge from the first day, though!
