This bright café, now mostly take-out, contains a small counter and outdoor seating, with art by Edward Cheng on the walls. Order "choux" (airy French pastries) in flavors like ham and cheese or rosemary and owner Yvette Ho's breakfast puffs (stuffed with egg and bacon or ham), plus lunchtime sandwiches and the option of salads. For something sweet, you'll find the choux stuffed with cream and fruit, plus muffins in flavors like pear, banana-chocolate, or pumpkin, with a full espresso menu to accompany.
