This meal is hosted.
I have been waiting for Mr. Holmes Bakehouse in Larchmont Village to open ever since I visited the Highland Park location! Welcome to my neighborhood!
This used to be a shoe store that I never shopped at.
Today’s donuts – Chocolate Cheesecake…
…and different croissants – I chose the Strawberry Elderflower one…
…but really what I’m most curious about are the cruffins! Half muffin, half croissant. These are Honeycomb flavored.
Sadly, none of this is gluten-free, so I deliver my box to Abe at work. My cousin Finny happened to be there, so he enjoyed them and took detailed notes for us. Here’s what the fourteen-year-old food critic had to say:
This cookie has textures that change with every bite. At first, it’s a crispy caramelized sugar that then gives way to a softer, gooey mouthfeel.
The best thing I tasted. The cruffin pastry would be good all on its own, but then it was elevated by a creampuff style filling, and a cinnamon sugar exterior.
Strawberry Elderberry Croissant
At first I vehemently disliked this croissant after realizing it was filled with a weird, gourmet Go-gurt style filling. But then, the other side was filled with a delicious strawberry jam.
