It was an early morning and Rachell and I were headed out of county for a mountain weekend when we decided to stop at French’s Pastry Bakery. I was skeptical, especially because I was in the mood to make a stop at Adams Avenue Donuts, but had no options because the Donuts Derelicts crew was in full force on the Saturday morning. Regardless, Rachell lead the way with the suggestion with the family owned/operated bakery.
So we stopped off at the local stop and ordered up five different pastries. A scone, apple turnover, chocolate croissant, cinnamon twist and cinnamon roll. I favored the cinnamon roll, but would have preferred something with both nuts and raisins.
The cost of it all set us back, $9.90, but the size, density and quality really made up for it. I would say just one pastry would be about two donuts, so by that math the price was right (and if you split them up right, could serve four).
With strong coffee, delectable treats and good company, French’s Pastry Bakery really pulled through with the win. I will definitely be back, maybe to try there bread.
