Tuna melt on butter croissant - 2+

J's comment > as wonderful as last visit's; not strictly on the menu, but available for order; OMG... the crust was extremely crisp and completely shattered when I bit into it; the center was light as air and not doughy or heavy in the least; definitely one of the top three croissants I have had the pleasure of eating, the other two rounding out the roster being Beta5's pretzel croissant @ their April afternoon tea event (really crossing fingers that they'll bring it back) and Beaucoup's insanely rich and heavy but so good cheese croissant

Oh, the other components that made up the actual tuna melt was OK, generous amts of tuna and sufficient cheddar cheese (avg cheese, but passable); the real star is the croissant which is baked  fresh in house daily

Thai soup - 2+

J's comment > very flavorful, slightly spicy, needs more chicken though

Chocolate walnut crumble cookie - 2

J's comment > a passable firm cookie, but needs more butter
