Pascaline Patisserie & Cafe | Sebastopol - Sonoma County

Melanie Wong | Dec 17, 201603:00 AM     3

When I first learned of Pascaline's opening last year, I figured I'd try it some day. Then I heard that it makes kouign amann and checking it out became a higher priority. However, I would soon learn that the KA are made in small quantities and sell out fast. I was finally successful on the third try in October, arriving by 10am on a Saturday morning.

I had my pick of the KA litter, pointing to the darkest one on display. Tender and moist inside with delicate layering and crisp edges on the exterior, this had a pleasing touch of salt to the caramelization and oozed French butter. Certainly worth my trouble.

On the two earlier visits, I'd not been as satisfied with other selections. Chocolate bouchon was much too dry. Canele was too blonde and lacked the rum. Apple turnover was okay if somewhat dry. And the almond croissant was pleasant enough. In truth, the best of those runs was a beverage, fresh lemonade.

What do others like here?
