Today, July 28 2023… however I decided to make the trek once again knowing they were open!!
The place presents amazing! Quaint spot in a nice shopping center with plenty of seating for I’d say about 15-20 outside under cover.
While waiting the staff couldn’t have been more pleasant and willing to help and explain anything. Super friendly and amazing! Those two alone make it a place to stop back through and support!
What I ordered First, 1 BLT Sandwich, Second, 1 Ham and Cheese croissant, Third, 3 Plain croissants and finally 4, 2 Chocolate Chip Cookies
Before I get into the scores I must say this place is a must stop if you live in San Diego at least once. The drive is east, once you’re off the freeway the scenery is gorgeous! Worth it!
Let me start in the order in which I tried the goods!
Chocolate Chip Cookie unfortunately very average 5.2 they do look amazing so I’ll be sure to ask again at some point if they are fresh and I’ll give it another go!
Ham and Cheese croissant - WOW!!! damn good! 8.3
BLT Sando - The bread is the winner here but overall not gonna blow my socks off. But if I lived around the corner I’d smash them consistently 7.4
And the reason for the trip the Croissant!
I’ve been very fortunate in life to travel quite extensively! If you’re looking for one of those sweet croissants don’t be shocked this is not. Buttery , Savory and a nice salt kick . I’m a fan! Definitely up there for me 8.1
I will add as I stop in and try more!
I hope you get a chance to try this lovely bakery! They deserve all the business they get!
