We like Fresh Flours best for hanging out and getting work done over a cappuccino while sunlight shines through the window (or, if it’s winter, when we pretend that it does). The Japanese baked goods are particularly tasty here - our favorites are the mini red bean pastry bars, and the matcha macarons that give the French bakeries in town a run for their money.
