This croissant was pretty big, but for almost five bucks I’d expect it to be. Like everything else at Specialty’s this croissant was extra buttery and heart clogging. Yum! $4.25

Mmm, the bakery items at Sentinel are always killer. This banana bread was so moist and flavorful and it was ginormous! I’m so glad that this place is close to my office! $2.75

Bouchon Bakery, Yountville CA
Ok, this is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. Bouchon Bakery presses the shit out of their croissant sandwiches so you end up with a flat, condensed buttery mess! Isn’t the joy of eating a croissant the ability to appreciate the airy layers and flaky exterior? Well, they’ve decided that eating a hard puck of food is preferable. Fail!

I like that the pastries at Boudin are larger than those from other bakeries, and they’re actually really tasty too! This flaky croissant had plenty of delicious almond paste inside and toasted almonds on top. $2.49

Ugh, I couldn’t stop filling my breakfast plate with SO much food every morning! I really didn’t have to eat so much and I wasn’t even that hungry, but I couldn’t pass up on tasting a little bit of everything. Hehe!
Waffle, ube (purple yam) bun, fruit, cheese bun.

Wow, these egg puffs were awesome! They reminded me of a fried version of light, airy, eggy popovers. The interior was smooth and custardy, and SO delicious! I shook most of the sugar off because I’m not a huge sweet fan, but really these warm puffs didn’t even need the extra sugar to make them better. They’re perfect as is! 3 pieces $3.25

I love the different shapes that all the pastries come in here! American blueberry pastries mostly come in a boring round shape. We don’t get a cool variety like the ones at Paris Baguette. It’s a shame. :(
