Beaucoup Praise for Beaucoup Bakery

I know it's been mentioned in the Kits Happenings thread, but thought this new spot deserved its own discussion.

WOW. I wandered into the bakery and ended up indulging in a whole lot more than I expected - all of it incredibly high quality.

The croissant is without a doubt the best I've had in the city - perfectly baked, properly proofed, well shaped, delicious. After being really disappointed by Thomas Haas, Faubourg, etc, I was excited to find a place that knows what they're supposed to look like.

There was an apple tart ($5.50) - sliced apples on top of pastry cream and a pate sucre base. The apples almost looked like a giant caramel: sliced on a mandoline, stacked like mille feuille and cooked to a caramel brown. Really well balanced with acid from the apples, delicious if a bit too large for one serving.

I also sampled the apricot and almond scroll, which was great - *very* apricot-y - and the peanut butter cookie (just sweet enough, with not a hint of that bitter, rancid flavour you can often get in them).

Very excited to see how this place develops - but it's a gorgeous spot and absolutely impressive start.
