The Flaky Tart 1

A French Tradition
At Antoinette Boulangerie, you’ll find authentic French pastries ranging from buttery croissants to cheese and vegetable quiches. The bakery also offers some lesser-known delicacies like pátes de fruit, which are chewy fruit squares made with gelatin, and petit fours. You can order custom cakes for any special occasion— choose from flavors like peach mousse, sweet lemon and strawberry shortcake, to name a few.

Bursting With Flavor
Sunburst Pie Company offers both full-size and hand pies, depending on the size of your sweet tooth. If you’re looking for something on the smaller side, try the Banana Nutella Empanada—the company captioned a photo of the treat saying, “All that’s missing is you and a big scoop of vanilla ice cream…” So what are you waiting for?

Sweet Tart
As its name suggests, The Flaky Tart is known for its freshly made seasonal and specialty tarts. The bakery loves to put fun spins on classic desserts— they’ve even transformed the flavors of S’mores and Key Lime Pie into tarts! Get the best of both worlds with the bakery’s other two-in-one desserts, like the cheesecake brownie or mini carrot cake cupcake.
