Elmwood locals have been coming here since 1976. Sit at one of a handful of tables with coffee and the famous Danish pastry, a cinnamon twist or croissant or one of the best chocolate-dipped macaroons you will ever have. You can admire the featured artwork by a local artists, or just sit and take in the Old World aroma of freshly baked goodies. Buy cakes by the slice or whole, including the zesty Carrot Pineapple.
