It was supposed to be a week of celebration with mother’s day and my birthday a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately all plans were canceled when I ended up having a major toothache which resulted in a very expensive emergency root canal. Ouch!! Anyway, I finally got a little belated celebration the following weekend. DH started off that weekend by bringing me to my favorite bakery in town, Bakery Nouveau, to grab some breakfast.
Bakery Nouveau has a long list of awards to its name. It even received a zagat rating of 28/30 in 2009. If you go to Bakery Nouveau, you will be greeted with a long line of customers out the door! Even though we got there pretty late, the line was still very long. As I stood in line, I took some photos of the pastry case. First I passed by lots & lots of really delicious looking chocolates.
Then there were macarons!! I think there were 6 flavors. Luckily Lil’ C wasn’t waiting in line with me or she would have wanted all the different flavors. I did get a couple of them. They were good but I think they were really small compared to the macarons from the other bakeries
Then it was cakes, gorgeous cakes! My stomach was protesting as I walked past these beautiful creations.
Then I finally got to what I came here for. The croissants! They have the best croissant in town! All crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and full of layers. They are also famous for their twice-baked almond croissant. I also got the chocolate twice-baked almond croissant. I got all these to-go and we had breakfast at the beach. One of the best breakfast I ever had!!
