Croissants

Nutty, bubbly Gruyère to the left, dark chocolate chunks to the right, both rolled in layers of butter.

German Apfel Streusel

Apple crumb cake meets shortbread. Tart, faintly sweet, and sturdy enough to hold and eat it like Sicilian pizza.

Monkey Bread

Basically, this is your chance to eat mini croissants like popcorn.

Chocolate Pudding Cake
Chocolate Pudding Cake

Tender, decadent, and barely set in the center, this is chocolate lava cake cooked just a moment longer. Did I mention it's flourless? (Happy Passover!)

Chocolate Chunk Cookie

Many consider this the best chocolate chip cookie in town, and no wonder: The complex, toffee-tinged batter packs tight layers of dark chocolate chunks.

Chocolate Bouchon

The chocolate in this cork-shaped treat is just as dark and rich as in the pudding cake, but this French brownie-like confection is a bit sturdier and lighter to eat.

Red Currant Financier

Tart, juicy red currants just might be the perfect match for the richness of brown butter and almonds.

Morning Bun with Walnuts

Ultra delicate and crisp at the edges with tunnels of crunchy, bittersweet walnuts running through the pastry.

Plum and Walnut Tea Cake
Plum and Walnut Tea Cake

A cold-weather teacake: chopped prunes and walnuts, a mellow hit of warm spices, and plenty of butter.

Rustic Fruit Tart

The flavors change regularly, but the appeal of these tarts (other than the flaky butter pastry) is that the fruit never sees too much sugar. This particular match-up, pear and raspberry, is particularly a really good one.

Cannelés
Cannelés

Crusty, puffy corks with an almost creamy core that taste like a cross between caramel, custard, and burnt marshmallows (in the best way).
