I ate breakfast and lunch there EVERY DAY while on a business trip. The breakfast pastries are different every day and you can see them come out of the oven. The sandwiches are so unique and yummy. Get the chocolate chip cookies with lunch!

It is not easy to keep Specialtys as a landmark. They are everywhere providing nice food along with Peet's Coffee. Fruit Tarts and Quiche were brilliant. They are good options for vegetarians. Good to grab a cup of hot drink with breakfast.

Our breakfast (bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich) was great and reasonably priced. The muffins were also great. The lady taking the order wasn't very pleasant.

If you like croissants/pastries, sandwiches and sweets... You're in for a treat! I love their butter croissant (plain) especially in the very early morning after I get off from my night shift as they are very warm and fresh. Sticky buns, cinnamon rolls, brownies and pecan tart are my other favorites. Only gave 4 stars coz I was disppointed that the staff put my pecan tart in a wax paper and in a sandwich bag were all the caramel on top sticked to the wax paper and was very messy and annoying to eat. Other staff usually place them in a box especially I buy a few piece not just 1 to bring home. They should be consistent in keeping the food properly handled as it is part of maintaining quality and presentation.

I have grabbed breakfast and snack here several times on business trips. Love the plain croissants - just melt in your mouth. The blueberry muffins are very flavorful also. Get there early though to get the yogurt with granola (peanut butter in the granola adds a nice flavor) - sells out fast!
