Hazelnut-Crusted French Toast
With Roasted Bananas, Maple Syrup & Spiced Butter
So, lets just start by saying that the eater of this dish is not a fan of sugary breakfasts & brunches. On top of that, he was already stuffed from the pastry basket. Yet, the first [...]
The TGM Pastry Basket
Our basket was overflowing.
When we say overflowing, we mean seriously overflowing.
Even after removing the warm slice of chocolate babka, the basket was overstuffed. Any one of these pastries could easily have been a meal for a [...]
Fresh Cream Filled Croissants
Castella Crumb Twisted Doughnut
99 cents… Seriously? They were on this day. It was the daily special.
Light, fluffy and delicious. This was absolute heaven with a green tea latte. The airy dough was rich and full of flavor. This was no [...]
Starbucks Salted Caramel Cocoa By The Packet

The General Muir’s Sesame Bagel
We would have preferred poppy. But, beggars can’t be choosers. Even after an early lunch, the bagels were almost gone by the end of our meal. So, go early!
What separates a good bagel from a great bagel? It’s not something that’s [...]
Maui Mokka — Starbucks Reserve
We’ve been lounging for almost 4 happy years in the Dancing Goats camp (Batdorf & Bronson, Dancing Goats, more & more still). But, a serendipitous fluke had us wandering randomly into the Decatur Square Starbucks. We stumbled upon a display of Starbucks reserve coffees and greedily [...]
There are no words to adequately describe the goodness.
The outer layers are delightfully light, flaky, airy and crisp in a perfectly fragile and delicate way. The interior is buttery, dense and so deliciously rich with sweet, almond paste. It’s literally dripping in slivered almonds [...]
Salmon Cakes Benedict
This was a great choice.
Yes, this was a very good choice. Gorgeous, bright orange and custardy egg yolks were perfectly cooked. Tender salmon cakes, lemon [...]
