Voyageur du temps (Los Altos)

I am seriously addicted to this place. French bakery run by a Japanese dude, Nobu, who is the most humble person ever and I can only wish him great success...

You ever go to a bakery and see the most amazing pastries and breads only to bite into flaccid croissants, non crusty baguette, etc.? Look no more. So far I've tried the bacon epi, rich smoky bacon wrapped by the perfect baguette, which is airy yet chewy on the outside with a crisp crust that shatters on impact and their star ring which is a brioche that is dusted with confectioners sugar and lemon zest. Brioche is shaped as a star with points, which results in a light fluffy brioche center but the points are more crusty. The ambience feels like a place that belongs in napa or the hamptons.

FYI, if you can't fathom paying $4.50 for a croissant or $5 for a Danish, then don't come here, as they are premium prices. But for me, it's worth the premium for superlative pastries and breads.
