Not your ordinary bread pudding. We consider ours to be a form of art. We begin with artisanal bread or our finely crafted croissants along with a proprietary custard, rich with eggs and cream. You’ll experience subtle hints of coconut milk, rich, dark chocolate, mellow notes of banana and vanilla, which takes things to the Next Level. We have three options available, depending on which destination you’re feeling:  Caribbean Coconut (pictured above), California Walnut Banana (pictured above) and Cacao Chocolate.  We highly recommend you experience them all, you’ll be glad you did.

Number 4: Caribbean Coconut Cupcakes

Don’t fly to the Caribbean, savor it. From your couch that is. As light and airy as an island breeze, this dessert pairs real flakes of coconut with exotic hints of rum along with some rich, buttery flavor to take you away from your busy day!

And then we have the almighty popular croissant - a simple pastry and staple of any great bakery yet one of the most complex to create.  What does it take to master the art of making a croissant?  That’s a great question.  We’ve done so through our master baker’s skilled hands, as well as using the best quality sourced ingredients, and the most importantly, Love.  Our pain aux chocolat, almond and French butter croissants are prepared with imported European butter and non-gmo flour from Les Moulins de Soulanges, and chocolate from France and loving hands and attention.  We take great pride in viennoiserie, you must swing by and try one or all.

Stay tuned to find out where we’re headed next…
