Fodor's Review

This self-service bakery-restaurant has the urban aesthetic to match its name. Chef and owner Maury Rubin's baked goods—giant cookies; addictively flaky, salty-sweet pretzel croissants; elegant caramel tarts—are unfailingly rich and delicious, but another major draw is the salad bar. It may seem overpriced, but the large selection of impeccably fresh food, including whole sides of baked salmon, roasted vegetables, soups, and several Asian-accented dishes, delivers a lot of bang for the buck. Much of the produce comes from the nearby farmers' market. In winter, the bakery hosts a hot-chocolate festival; in summer, it's lemonade time.
