Oh, Bien Cuit, I wanted to like you, I really did. I had read good things and the bakery looked adorable. But alas, even though I wanted to like it, I didn't.
Love their logo and the look of the bakery.
Walk in and there's seating to the left and the baked good displayed to the right.
Harney & Sons tea is served here. I got an iced tea in Winter White Earl Grey, which was smooth and refreshing. Not at all bitter.
There isn't a huge selection but there's everything from savory sandwiches to sweet tarts.
How great does that bread look? I should go back to try the bread.
A total of three baked goods were ordered and I was disappointed in all three. Above is the pistachio roulade and the iced tea. I was hoping the roulade would be light and flaky, but it was heavy and dense. The almond croissant (also dense), and the savory strata both lacked a punch in flavor.
