"Nothing but sit and sit and eat and eat" says Petruchio at the wedding banquet and that is exactly the thought I have when I think of Ruby et Violette!
When you walk in, you're greeted not only with a smiling, enthusiastic staff, but easy music and an easier atmosphere. The cookies and brownies are amazing and depending on your mood, the baristas can make suggestions of what drink you might want to pair with your dessert (ie a nice latte, or a mocha, or some of their INCREDIBLE drinking chocolate, or maybe a hot herbal tea or lemonaide or iced tea!!!!!)
The relaxed sitting area transports me directly non-stop to Paris. With the marble table tops, the white iron chairs, and the beautiful artwork, I feel completely at ease in a fast paced neighborhood.
The best part was that I controlled my expereince! The baristas there take such pride in their work and friendly and talkative, but if you're looking for a more private encounter, they will help with your selection and that is that, but never faulting in their carefulness!
A complete, naturally relaxed PERSONABLE experience that led me to leave with a box delicious cookies and brownies for later that night!
10 outa 10!
Pros: Delicious desserts, drinking chocolate, and fantastic staff
Cons: hard pressed to find one.
