Because one bakery on my corner isn't enough, now there are two! At 7:30 a.m. the sticky bun ($4.50) was warm from the oven. I usually find that sticky buns are better in theory than in practice, but this one was pretty good: gooey but not too gooey, tender pastry with lots of nuts and butter. The croissant is also very good: light and airy but still buttery. I haven't tried the filled brioche bun or the molleaux (should be moelleux, according to Google) yet.

Early in the morning, all they had on offer was pastries. Bread will be available a little later in the day. No hours posted, but according to their website, 7-7 Tues-Sat, 7-3 Sunday; closed Monday.
