A tiny little corner pad can hardly fit a steady stream of people who want nothing more than a morning cup of coffee and a pastry to go with their morning paper reading. Then there are those who come to grab a fresh loaf of wonderful goodness for dinner. Families! I love to see families enjoying each other's presence; kids indulging in their cream puffs using their whole face. And above all this commotion floats a cloud of heavenly smell of freshly baked crusty bread. Mmmm. This bakery is certainly exceptional.
Vika goes for the Passionfruit Mango Tart: a generously-sized, meringue-topped delight with a bold tropical flavor.
Being a croissant junkie, I chose one filled with ham, asiago, and tarragon.
Finally, we finish with a trio of Macarons: pistachio, huckleberry, and caramel-sea salt. A nice, light, and slightly chewy little bon-bon, which made our hearts sing. Definitely exceptional!
