You guys, Beyonce eats here.
It’s like this place was built for Instagram. The photogenic dining area. The natural light. The fake old world charm. The vanilla almond milk latte art.
This place is very delicious and well deserving of all of the hype.
LOOK AT THOSE KOUIGN AMANN LAYERS. I got the pistachio raspberry one sooooooo perfect. You get that traditional caramel-y bottom and croissant-like layers with the added bonus of tart fruit and crunchy nuts. YAY.
I also had the mushroom toast with the hollandaise on the side. Fluffy scrambled eggs, earthy mushrooms in a red wine sauce, thin slices of (Parma?) ham, and wilted spinach. All on a crusty slice of bread. Perfect weekend food.
This place is beautiful and delicious but also expensive and popular. We waited in line for close to 30 minutes at 8ish on a Sunday and I paid $28 (+tip) for the 3 things above. My face at the register: O_O.
Still, I’d do it again. I really enjoyed it.
Also, good luck trying to get past this and not picking up a pastry or two.
