was a fixture of the Cobble Hill neighborhood for 14 years, serving up French-American inspired pastries, snacks and desserts from miniature madeleines to bread puddings to cupcakes and even ice cream and savories—all dreamed up by chef and owner Melissa Murphy.
due to rising rental costs and choosing instead to focus on the Sweet Melissa Park Slope location on Seventh Avenue, the space at 276 Court Street between Butler Place and Douglass Street now sits vacant.
