Taste of Tyrol in the Northgate 1 shopping center in San Rafael has papered-over windows and is being gutted. Not a good sign!
This classy little bakery cum cafe was my local source of fancy cakes and pastries, and a breakfast stopover with excellent coffee, croissants and Danishes.
Looks like there's now no place to get a good croissant in the area. Let's not even consider the crescent-shaped imposters at the donut shop, or those doughy wannabes they sell at Safeway.
Anybody have any recommendations?
