First off, the actual bakery shop is great for a casual meet-up, a study session, or just a delicious break in your day. The desserts are light and moderately sweet, so you'll be sure not get a sugar high. When I visited, the place wasn't busy, so it was nice and quiet; however, I imagine this place will soon get a lot of attention and possibly lose that serenity it now enjoys. From the pastries, I really enjoyed the Napoleon cake: I'm a bit used to the creamy taste of the Russian version of this pastry, but the one I tasted here was crispier and much lighter. Second, I ordered my wedding cakes here, and they were superb. We wanted something tasteful and unique—the French cakes that Sebastian suggested definitely were all that and more. The cakes were made of the choux pastries you can also get separately at the shop. So overall, this place is great for both a casual drop-in and a more high-end order. Great job and keep it up!
