The London Fog cake is hands down my favourite item here. A vanilla layered cake, the hint of bergamot is truly evocative of a warm tea latte, and the whipped frosting is not too heavy - it's like the foam on top of that latte. It's still a super-rich, decadent treat, but you won't feel heavy and weighed down after eating it - just totally, completely satisfied.
On our visit today my fella had the Bacon Swirl - a cinnamon twist featuring bacon. Now THAT was rich - and S. remarked that he couldn't actually taste the bacon, as opposed to say, the Maple Bacon Fritter at 49th Parallel/Lucky's Donuts. It was definitely there, but the buttery pastry and the cinnamon really overpowered any accent the bacon could have provided.
The only reason this place doesn't get a 5 stars from me is the lack of sit-down seating, the limited range of take-home treats, and the fact that the coffee is not as great as it could/should be to accompany such sweet treats. But the baking itself is divine, and the staff is lovely.
|The Bacon Swirl. Yep.|
|Try one of the truffles if you're looking for a small sweet. This is Salted Caramel Pecan.|
