Actually, this is one of my favourite places to get pastries. They're delicious whenever I go and the staff are extremely pleasant. I've been going since the summer of 2010 so perhaps the older posts have made them improve?
Try them yourself- I recommend the deep fried custard (I think you get a deal if you buy 3), chocolate almond croissant, or any of the mini-cakes. The last few times I've gotten take away they have awesome containers to transport them in that don't result in messes.
