It’s no secret that Houston’s culinary scene is hot and rising. The first bakery of its kind in town, the sleek, state-of-the-art shop evokes a cool kid’s playground. Walk in and be awed by the sheer beauty and bounty of the oversized bakery case, where American favorites, such as Texas-sized brownies, share space with pastel-hued macarons, and frosted eclairs. But the stars of the show are the butter-sheathed, airy croissants, and the salty/sweet sticky buns. An evolving menu means you’ll discover something new each time you visit. Crafted coffee and Valrhona hot chocolate are icing on the cake.
