Flakey Tart - Atlantic Highlands.

A while back I had a craving for a Pan Chocolate, (forgive my spelling - I not only kill french while speaking, I write it terrible as well!) and asked in a threadwhere to find it in Monmouth County. FOUND IT!!!!! This place is amazing. It's located in the same store front that used to be Just Great Desserts. I checked it out on Wednesday, and was told that the display cases were a little on the empty side as it is mid-week, and that there are more items on weekends. If there were more things available I may have exploded,, so maybe I'm better off. So here is what I tried today: Pan Chocolate, unbelievably flakey puff pastry, buttery with a nice filling of good quality chocolate. Next up a Ham & Gruyerre Croissant, same pastry with ham and cheese baked right into the dough, and finally Pecan Sticky Buns. The folks at this place actually had roll their own puff pastry dough. I have never seen a bakery like this outside of NYC. There were also a few savory items available, although outside if the croissant I didn't try anything. I have a strong suspicion that I may be going there again real soon (tomorrow) so if I try anything else I'll be sure to post
