Runner and Stone offers a variety of French-inspired favorites, like this Palmier cookie. The flaky, light, and almost over-sized elephant ear runs you just $1.00.
A New Neighborhood Face
Head baker and co-owner Peter Endriss makes a "reverse commute" every morning into the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn from Manhattan. Rooted neighbors need not travel quite as far for their morning fix.
The brioche loaf ($5) has hints of orange blossom water, making it suitable for spreading with fruity jams, toasting with maple syrup, or enjoying fresh off the rack.
The Rye Brownie ($3) is a massive square of 72% dark chocolate, rye flour, and caraway. A bread baker's inside joke for perceptive sweet eaters.
The Almond Croissant ($3.25) gets a boozy twist—it's filled with almond cream and vanilla rum syrup.
The Turnover of the Day ($3) features different housemade fillings. We caught them on a Lemon day, with bright and citrusy cream enveloped in a beautiful puff pastry purse.
Day to Night
The sleek movable panels at Runner and Stone seamlessly transform the space from coffee shop and boulangerie to wine bar and restaurant.
