Cocoa Bean For Every Day!
Stop by for your morning coffee or hot chocolate and try one of our freshly baked almond croissants, chocolate croissants, or maybe a pistachio apricot Danish.
Try us out for lunch and pick from our selection of panini sandwiches, and maybe an individual chocolate mousse cake or vanilla crème brûlée for dessert. Our seasonal menus feature special salads in the Summer, and soups with baguettes in the Fall and Winter.
We also have a selection of large cakes and miniature pastries to choose from for any occasion. Our pastries are made from the finest ingredients and we do not use any preservatives.
