I stopped in for the first time today, and I'm so thrilled to have a European bakery in Durham. When I lived in the northeast, it was easy to find Polish and other European foods and baked goods and I've missed that a lot since I moved back to the south. This place is a real hidden gem. Everything I ordered was delicious, especially the sourdough bread.

Went there at opening to grab pastries and coffee for a morning get together. The pastries were good - I bought a fairly wide selection including scones, polish cookies, more traditional cookies, crumb cake, and more. The staff was so kind and helpful and patient!
Unfortunately there were no pierogis ready when I went to order.
The coffee was OK. I don't know if I would order it again - and my guests who I also got coffee for had the same general impression (and that's the only reason I'm giving 4/5 stars).

Have loved everything I've tried (focaccia, sourdough bread, chocolate bouchons, and more I can't spell). Favorite is the Paczki! The textures and flavors make these more than just a jelly filled doughnut. Appreciate the free samples to try before buying too.
Coffee and service is top notch and a good casual meeting spot. Margaret and her staff are fostering community and palates.

The space is nice and the items are well displayed. The smaller pastries were okay but a bit pricey. I didn't feel very welcomed as a customer. The lady at the register was pleasant enough. But the guy in the kitchen stared at me the entire time and it was not a friendly look. I won't be returning.

The pumpkin pastry and tomato cheese bread that we ordered was really good. They also had some (free) little toys for kids to take home and play with, which was a nice touch. It’s a little hard to find; look for two little picnic tables out front.

Great new bakery - the bread has been fantastic and the pastries were flavorful. Good selection of teas and coffee, and the owner and her staff were very nice and helpful with our order. Looking forward to coming back many times!

Stumbled on this bakery and was happy that I did! The selection of items was amazing, settled on Italian Coffee Shots, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, and a Cappuccino. Everything was amazing and the staff was warm and super friendly! I’ll be back!

Grabbed some pastries and an espresso. The pastries where FANTASTIC! Espresso delicious and a great compliment. The owner and staff were very friendly, and professional. I will definitely be going back often, but I need to get there earlier and check out a weekend.

Wow, I can't wait to see the place develop. Their offerings are already stellar - the pastry I got was delicious. I should have gotten more. The staff member I talked to was also super friendly. I look forward to coming back soon. I'm also excited that they're serving coffee from Carrboro Coffee Roasters. They make some of my favorite coffee in the area
