This funky spot next to Vassar College serves tasty and unusual fare (including vegetarian and vegan entrées) from breakfast through dinner. But we suspect it’s the huge pastry case — which is full of luscious goodies, all made from scratch by the pastry staff — that keeps the college kids (and us) coming through the door. One spoonful of their Chocolate Bomb, a cupcake-sized mound of light-as-air chocolate mousse surrounded by a soft chocolate ganache, and you’ll be addicted. (They make cakes for special occasions, too.)
