However, if you have ever visited one of their locations, then you know they also have tarts and tartlets, sweet breads, eclairs, scones, financiers, Cakes, cookies, and a wide range of sweet treats that are hard to resist. This might just be one of my favorite bakeries in the city and I used to love walking to their Lower Greenville location and just trying something new every week.
