“When I was 16 and arrived in France, I discovered chocolate mousse. I was crazy about the bread, too. Every morning, I’d go to the bakery and get a fresh croissant. It made me feel very sophisticated.” — Jerry Hall
They line up every morning for the fresh croissants at the Cottage Bakery & Cafe, and the latecomers leave sans croissants.
This ham & cheese croissant was all air and butter and cheese and ham! Such a tough choice to make among the chocolate croissant, cheese croissant, and the plain croissant. Good thing I arrived early enough to have a choice!
Of course, the Cottage Bakery has breads…………..
……………….and decadent cakes, like this layered carrot cake, yet they’re not too sweet. Perfect!
I strayed ‘way off my comfortable chocolate path and tried the macadamia nut shortbread.
The Fairfield community surely knows what a gem they have in their midst in the Cottage Bakery & Cafe.
It’s surely worth a stop!
