How did I not know this was here?? In the old Borders, across from Gaslamp 15 movies on Sixth. Beautiful, clean, white, Paris-y looking cafe with a few sandwiches and salads with perfect Classic French pastries that look like works of art. They are displayed in clear, lit, rectangular cases that really show them off.
I had one of the most amazing almond croissants- crispy and flaky on the outside, almond filling ratio and flavor was flawless. Not a huge monstrous croissant- just the perfect size.
Also had a salmon croissant sandwich with capers and red onion. Ingredients perfectly balanced.
St. Barths cake was creamy and delicious. Light with intense flavors.
The man taking our orders says he runs the place with his wife and that they are both from France. Open at breakfast til late at night. Coffee and wine on offer too. Prices were reasonable.
Definitely a place to try!!
