Athan

You walk in here and the place just exudes a welcoming warmth. Wall-to-wall of pastries! Unfortunately, it is not self-serve so you do have to get a worker’s attn to help you. They are super knowledgeable about the various choices and can help you make a decision.

this fruit tart looks amazing!

so big fruit tart

usually this place is packed but luckily today, this place wasn’t as crowded so I was able to walk around and snap a lot of shots and talk with the cashier and get her opinion on a lot of the pastries.

the more common breakfast pastries are closer to the cash register. this one looked delicious!

the gelato here is pretty good too but the pastries are what they are known for here.

First we started with a traditional baklava, it was flaky and covered in a delicious honey sauce.

The chocolate croissant was out of this world! The outside was crispy but the inside pastry was flaky and flavorful, complimenting the chocolate beautifully.

This hazelnut cream pie was a bit too rich for me but my brother devoured it in a few bites.
