|Lunch comes wrapped like a little present-- very exciting.|
Awhile back I gleefully announced the arrival of La Patisserie, a little French bakery at 602 W. Annie in South Austin that opened last fall. Proprietress Soraiya Nagree-- who also owns The Kitchen Space, a rentable commercial kitchen on the East side-- knows a thing or two (or 5,000) about French baked goods. She might be best known for her macarons (which, translated roughly from the French, means: Oreos my ass-- you call Oreos cookies! Tres droll!). Honestly though, I mean it when I say I have worked my way through Soraiya's pastry case and back again and every single thing in it is spectacular.

|Not your ordinary PB & J, this gourmet version is served on crusty brioche and features grapefruit jelly. Tre exquisite.|
|Croissant with brie and apple on a croissant. Almost like being back in Paris.|
|Ooo-la-la the egg tart is filled with chevre, fennel and caramelized onions. Total mouth melt.|
