“Edible Art?”
Review of Crisan Bakery

Crisan Bakery
Ranked #3 of 21 Bakeries in Albany
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 11, 2013

I really wanted to like this place, the "edible art" concept is amusing: the glass-topped tables are chock full of M&Ms, milk bottle tops, and other "edible" odds and ends, studded with brioche. The desserts in the case look lovely, quite a few desserts to choose from. I have to say though that the one I chose was not as fabulous as it looked, and my dining companion found her cake to be quite dry. So next time I'm in the neighborhood I'll have to go back and taste some of the other desserts, maybe earlier in the day, to give it another try.

I was surprised to find out that this bakery and coffee shop had been in business on Lark Street for five years. (See below for more about this!***). Great price, pleasant staff and nice surroundings. It is also an edible art gallery, meaning a few paintings and table inlays have artwork made out of food! Nice. The cafe only holds two tables, unfortunately, and no WI-FI.

The desserts were yummy and well priced. I especially liked the chocolate macaroons, since they were not too dense. In fact, EVERYTHING looked good.....and fresh. A coffee, tea, two macaroons and one other dessert came to less than ten dollars.

***How did I miss Crisan? I'll tell you how: The Google Search for "Coffee Shop Albany NY" does bring it up in the listing! You must google desserts! Then, when you put the address in your GPS, the GPS can't find the location!
