A great sour dough that has a crunchy crust and is soft inside, French bread, and rolls are baked here in very old brick-lined ovens. Pastries include buttery croissants, pain au chocolat, and cheese Danish as well as scones and cookies, and a large selection of biscotti—think anise, almond, chocolate and more--is sold by the pound. All this and lovely wall murals, too.
