Café Besalu is a family bakery, famous for perfect, buttery, flaky croissants. Some say they’re the best in the US, and we’re hard-pressed to disagree. Everything is baked fresh daily and made with love and care under the instruction of the husband and wife owners. The creamy quiches are equally as brilliant and have a somewhat cult following!

We Love Their: Croissant, Pain au Chocolat, Quiche Lorraine

Quaint and cozy, Crumble and Flake Patisserie makes small quantity baked goods, with French inspiration and a bit of tasty quirkiness. Patrons line up outside the door to purchase their innovative treats, and the store closes once they run out. How could an Oreo get better you ask? Well, how about Cheweos, made with a buttery filling and alternating flavors?

We Love Their: Cheweos, Macarons, Chocolate Filled Kouign Amann, Filled-to-Order Cream Puffs
