If you’re visiting the bakery in the morning, you’ll want to try one of their croissants or a danish with coffee to perk you up. The choice includes butter croissant, almond croissant, pain au chocolat, chocolate twist, pain aux raisin, apricot danish, pear and almond danish, cinnamon roll and mixed berry brioche. They also make a cookie croissant (chocolate cookie baked inside croissant dough), pistachio brionut (brioche doughnut) and choquette (French pastry sugar puff).

Brownie and Coffee

Indulgent sweet treats include chocolate brownies, which I think are fantastic. Since living in the area, I’ve also tried the chocolate éclair, vanilla cheesecake topped with fresh berries and Paris-Brest, a choux pastry filled with creamy praline crème. I can vouch for them all!

Mozzarella and Pesto Baguette

The filled baguettes are lovely because they make the bread on-site. At the moment, the baguette choice includes veggie options like houmous with black olive and roasted vegetables, egg with avocado and chilli and mozzarella with pesto. Meaty versions are saucisson with cornichon, pastrami with cheese or ham and cheese.

We shared a vegetarian croque monsieur and mini pizza with broccoli and mushroom, which was very good; they also had a cheese and tomato version.
