Advice: Join the line-up for delicious treats. Closed Monday.
Every neighborhood needs an amazing patisserie café, Pastry Chef/Owner Steven Hodge recently opened the spot. Not only is it already a neighborhood go to spot for the sweet and indulgent, it is also the go to spot for many foodies who trek from one end of the city to another for outstanding baked goods. I visited with a friend and tasted an array of baked goodies, sandwiches, and more. Loved the house specialty, Coconut Croissant which is filled with not so sweet moist coconut, also enjoyed the Coconut Chocolate Croissant and the Bulgarian specialty Potica. The Charlie Bite is where the ends of the croissants go then they add cinnamon, it’s highly addictive! Their Butter Croissant is very rich, made as a triple fold, it’s quite the baking process so I hear.
For lunch I had the delicious grilled Montreal Smoked Meat Sandwich that was filled with meat from Sebastian & Co, mustard and pickles, I also tried the Vegetarian Sandwich which was full of tasty vegetables. Trying the Orange Madeline was a must and quite the treat, and it went so well with the Stumptown Coffee Espresso Macchiato.
I took some treats to go and enjoyed the delicious Vanilla Caramel Cake, the outstanding Cheese Cakes as well as the array of chocolates. You will find a pastry case filled with treats for your indulgence as well as your special occasions, you’ll also find more baked goods, chocolates, and sweet sensations for kids and adults alike.
