On Saturday morning before the wedding, Ken and I were in the mood for chocolate croissants and other pastries. We were staying at the Knickerbocker Hotel (where the wedding reception was) and we looked up places for breakfast. Luckily, Sarah’s Pastries and Candies wasn’t too far from our hotel and we braved the snow to walk over for some coffee and pastries.
The place is very cute and sells all kinds of pastries, chocolates, and cakes:
They have an impressive amount of cupcakes:
And macarons (although they looked very greasy so I decided not to order any):
Ken ordered the chocolate croissant:
And I went with the raspberry scone:
The chocolate croissants innards:
The shot is a little deceptive because the distribution of chocolate was very uneven and some bites didn’t have any chocolate at all! The scone, however, was very buttery and really delicious with coffee.
Sarah has also published a book and sells all types of chocolates in the store:
The store was a great stop before we walked around Michigan Avenue and Oak Street (although we didn’t last long because it was SO INCREDIBLY COLD when we visited).
