(L) hazelnut and almond tart and their Portuguese tart. Fantastic pastry casings which were fluffy light and melt in your mouth. They nailed this hey: The Portuguese tart is pretty great – light custard, not overtly sweet – nuanced with each bite. $3

Steamed Meringue with Salted Caramel and crushed nuts (almonds). Very light dessert that you dug into with your spoon. Married well with the coffees.


That video of the super juicy salted caramel donut. It really was all kinds of special.
