Panya (Japanese Bakery on 9th St.)

I've mentioned this place before, I know, but I stopped in over the weekend and realized I don't stop in nearly enough. It's really good. I had what may become a new Favorite Thing: green tea poundcake. A big thick slice of moist cake, not too sweet, definite green tea flavor, but wisps of something else too: almond? chestnut?

Anybody else have any experiences with this place? Recommendations? In the past, I've just had their odd little sandwiches on sticky soft rolls, good cookies, and always reliable coffee. I'm definitely adding the green tea poundcake to my list (in fact, I've realized I really need to get some on the way home). Anything else?

(It's just east of 3rd Ave., BTW, conveniently located near St. Mark's Books and the Sunrise Mart.)
