We all knew the pastries would be stunning anytime Sarah Botcher ultimately opened a storefront bakery.
Her bostocks and kouign amanns had acquired a cult subsequent as a result of 6 many years of pop-ups at farmers’ marketplaces and bicycle shops and wholesale baking for coffeehouses. The shock takeaway from our initially visit to Black Walnut Bakery, Botcher’s new bakery café in Uptown? Her savory video game seems just as amazing.
Commence with the breakfast sandwich. As an alternative of some flabby egg offering, this order delivers a sunny block of soufléed egg layered with ham and cheese. The bread? A promptly pressed, flaky croissant. Her revolutionary croissant bread—that’s suitable, it is a loaf of croissant—produces a deceptively light croque monsieur.
The savory things retains coming: sausage toasties, flatbreads with industry toppings. That said, it is Okay in my guide if you load a plate with all those beautiful fruit galettes, pineapple-coconut meringue cakes, and espresso shortbreads and connect with it supper.
