I’ve heard a lot about Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe, especially in magazines. However it wasn’t until recently when GRock’s friend started working there as a baker that I’ve succumbed to lots more praises and recommendations from GRock. The final nail in the coffin was when GRock showed me a picture of this magical looking poached plum tart that they had for the Fall season. I had to have it, so finally I made a date with Miz Brown Sugar, C-Dizzle, and Erin to visit the bakery for a sugar coma fest.
There are a ton of baked goods to choose from obviously, but they have a pretty extensive cafe menu too. We were instructed by GRock to arrive no later than 10:45am on a Friday for the best selection.
And it was a wise decision, as we saw that the store was constantly busy. We were lucky though that their signature item the Almond Croissant was still plentiful even by the time we left, as were a lot of their other goodies.
Miz Brown Sugar is vegan so all she had was a latte (every baked good has eggs in it). She was very excited about the latte art.
Since we arrived so early, I hadn’t had a chance to eat breakfast yet. Neither had C-Dizzle and she quickly hopped to it and ordered a Brioche with Duck Prosciutto, Rillette Mayo, Red Oak Lettuce, Candied Walnuts & Apple ($9.5, not pictured). I was originally just here for the sweets, but once she unwrapped her sandwich, I knew I had to get one too. So I picked the Cheese Scone with Porchetta & Smoked Cheddar ($9.5, pictured above).
