As a former New Yorker, I am spoiled when it comes to pastries. Although I have been buying sourdough bread from this bakery for years through one of their unrelated vendor outlets, I had never actually gone into their bakery until recently. I now know what I have been missing all these years. All of their tarts and specialty pies... More

The baker was trained in Paris, and her bread, cakes and pastries, which change daily, reflect her training and creativity.... More
