Coming back from France, I was really craving for authentic french style flaky pastry croissant. Not the usual fluffy ones found in the US. Having gone a few times. It was hard to decide whether to award a average or very good rating to this place.
Lots of curb appeal. Beautiful pastry case
Nice sidewalk tables in the warm weather, great for pet owners
Moist and delicious mousses, creme brulee, fondant cakes,etc.
Sandwich fillings are tasty, quiches are fine.
Plain croissant are flaky and buttery when freshly placed in the pastry case but mostly when taken home and re-toasted
Almond croissant, almost no almond flavor or filling...cinnamon flavors predominated and the pastry was chewy. My advice.would be to try something else
Any dessert with a flaky pastry crust tends towards chewy. Don't know if this is production problem or display case issue (too moist, too cold?) But if you're eating
onsite...take a pass., If you're buying to take home and the pastry in question can be slightly toasted....then the problem is solved. However some pastry desserts like a
Mille-Feuille (aka Napoleon) do not lend themselves to heating well. when heated they melt into a sweet pile of goop around the now flaky pastry. ...
But in overall it's a pleasant place to stop for a break or lunch.Coffees and teas are fine.
