Lemon, ginger, chocolate and a long etcetera cookies decorated with icing make this place the epitome of this type of pastry. Also be a gift to view the simple entrance to the store, not you must must try Bourbon biscuits (which are whole chocolate) and I was even surprised by their cupcakes. They have a small area inside to take there same their famous cookies. Also have published a book that is essential if you are a lover of its decoration with glaze: Biscuiteers. The book to decorate cookies
I tried those vanilla, chocolate cake (Bourbon) and and it (ginger and cinnamon). The vanilla and ginger have maple syrup, which makes having a sweet taste sweet at the end. Crunchy thanks to the decoration with icing and no frosting, you have very balanced the sweetness. Don't miss the decorations.

Bun (mix between brioche and croissant) cream filling, called "Une Folie" He could not have a better name (meaning "Madness"). Together with DKA (Dominique completo Kouign Amann) is probably in Dominique Ansel Bakery New York (see the) post), the best pastry I've ever taken in my life. Layers, which were caramelized and soft vanilla cream made of this specialty, a real "sweet dream"

Stuffed with pastry cream, take these rolls while I, for a change as always, have changed the recipe. Sometimes these muffins carry icing above although I have preferred to splash them with icing sugar, although it later if you want a sweet touch. These muffins are smoother if you do the mass of overnight although I could not stand and bake them flip!
