Yesterday I had a chance to try a selection of morning pastries from Brioche bakery in North Beach.
Blueberry Danish – Buttery pastry, just enough sugar to not overwhelm the fresh berries, good job.
Fruit fougasse – Pale in color with a satisfyingly chewy texture to the dough shaped in a small ladder shape, filled with dried figs and other dried fruit, my favorite of the bunch. Also made in an olive version.
Almond croissant – Good version, lots of almond paste filling, not quite as crunchy as I prefer
Sugar brioche – A big slice of almost layered waves of buttery, eggy brioche sprinkled with sugar. I liked this one very much too for a less sweet start to the day.
