Portable (Delicious - Finger Licking) Pastries to go!.
Walk in and take a deep whiff of the fresh baked pastries that your eyes (and soon your stomach) feast upon. I have tried their morning roll, hazelnut brioche, chocolate cork, and one of their breads, and all delighted me. If you are craving chocolate the cork is fantastic, rich, dense, soaked in espresso, dusted with cocoa powder - a chocolate explosion for your taste buds. The brioche was a nice alternative to the sticky bun of many breakfasts, still had the delicious flavor packed middle (the best part of any dessert!) but had a flakier, almost croissant like consistency that melted in your mouth. Treat yourself to a few, and you have a nice tasty bite on the go.
