pistachio desserts – A cute little cafe!
The cafe is small and cozy and quite a few couples were huddling together. Obviously good ambience.
I ordered pistachio creme brulee and pistachio cake to go. The creme brulee is creamy with real vanilla seeds, smelled awesome with pistachio, with a price tag of $5. The cake is a square 1 inch cake, not the sponge one. It has pistachio flavor but not as good as what I have expected.
Overall, pretty good desserts.
great panninis, terrible service – i love the fresh mozz and tom. pannini's, the best. It's pricey and the food takes a really long time to prepare, but it's delicious. The service varies from cold and indifferent to straight out nasty and rude. Where is the management? I can't imagine they're aware of how nasty the staff is.
Best brunch and coffee in the neighborhood – Fabianes is very popular for breakfast/brunch and rightfully so - the coffee drinks (lattes, cappuccinos and mochas) are so delicious. The baked eggs (especially the crispy prosciutto/cheddar) are excellent and so are the breakfast staples such as waffles, yogurt/fruit and granola. Try the acai w/ granola - a brazilian favorite made from a berry that comes from the Amazon. The lines can get long, but the service is efficient. This place is highly recommended!
great! – For breakfast the place gets very busy and tight. Keep in mind that before 5pm each day you need to go the counter to place your order. No table service before 5pm! Although this should not keep you from going. It's very busy by 10 am and pretty much stays that way till about 2pm. Their baked eggs are amazing, and so are the panni sandwiches. Great lattes, and espressos. The bad part is that the windows are opening when it's nice outside and their outside seating houses smokers by the dozen. If the wind is strong the smell comes right in. Avoid sitting next to the outside seating area. all of their chocolates seem to be made w/the flavor of hazelnut or praline, which i hate. I stick to the fruit tarts, but my b/f loves it. In the evening it's great for a night cap.
A great find! – This was one of the best breakfasts I have ever had! The baked egg dishes are so tasty and filling, and very unique. The taste and prices are perfect for everyone. My only gripe is I wish the tables were bigger to accomodate all the food and drinks. Enjoy!
perfect at being what it is – Lots of daylight, perfect croissants, other baked goods, granola, small salads and light lunches. Everything is beautifully made and the prices, while higher than those at the local delis, are appropriate for the higher quality ingredients used. And they don't mind you sitting at a table drinking your coffee slowly with your laptop in front of you.
