Pastries are the main draw at this South End newcomer from acclaimed chef Frédéric Robert, a James Beard Award winner and decades-spanning collaborator with Alain Ducasse. But they're complemented by small-batch coffee from La Colombe, a 20-year-old roasting company with a handful of cafes in NYC, Philly, Chicago and DC.
Must-Order: Try the cortado, a silky sip that's equal parts espresso and steamed milk.
On the Menu: We mentioned Frédéric Robert, right? You can't go wrong among the croissants, éclairs, macarons, tarts and, obviously, madeleines.
