Sorry if there's a thread already on this newly opened place.
I tried a few things recently and am thrilled to report the croissants are excellent. Flaky, tender, and almost perfect- just a titch over browned on the outside.
The ciabatta is just odd... not sure if it's some kind of whole grain flour or what. It's got lots of brown grainy looking bits in it. I thought it might be olive at first but it doesn't smell or taste olivey. It's very moist and it's not a bad flavor- just not sure if it's what I'm usually seeking in a ciabatta.
The blueberry muffin tastes pretty strongly of some spice.. cardamom, I think. It's overpowering, IMO. Not what I'm looking for in a muffin.
Chocolate chop cookies were very good.
They offer prepared foods and sandwiches as well. I didn't try any. The menu is on the website, which I linked from the Place page, below.
