I visited: Mrs. London’s, a cafe and bakery in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., that’s been featured in the New York Times (Hint: 4 recipes included in that link.) and Food & Wine, and perhaps other publications. It’s menu features croques, paninis, baguette sandwiches, croissants, pastries, breads, soups, quiches and more.
I tried: the chocolate almond croissant.
Why it stood out: I’d read a few Yelp reviews that raved about the almond croissants. When I discovered that there were *chocolate* almond croissants, too, I swooned big time. The buttery croissant was filled with thick fudge and blanketed with an almond cream that had bubbled and hardened into a thin, cookie-like crisp in the oven. It was topped with shaved almonds and chocolate drizzle.
It cost: $4.50 — 25 cents more than the plain almond croissant, so duh.
