Breakfast Pastry

Our selection of breakfast pastries is both extensive and inspiring. From simple scones and muffins, to the more challenging yeasted products like danish, croissant and brioche (known in Europe as "Viennoiseries"), our daily offerings are like a master class in  the art of baking-always eye-appealing, always bountiful.  Most importantly, and in the serious tradition of European baking, our products in this category are much more than empty calories. Many of the danish pastries, for example, are made with nuts fillings or with fruits, especially the tarter kinds, which contrasts well with the sweetness of the dough and glazes. Our brioche are light as a feather, while our Cranberry Muffins are dense and satisfying. Our Bran Muffins are actually moist, as are our wonderful Carrot Muffins.

We certainly have not exhausted the range of possibilities in this category, and we are always adding something new seasonally; but you can be assured of always finding something different for your breakfast table or for eating on-the-go everyday. The following is a comprehensive list of the breakfast pastries we make every day. As new or seasonal items become available, we will post them on our blog. The only thing else you will need is a good cup of tea or coffee and the morning paper.
