Bread and Cie is my favorite French bakery in San Diego and I like to stop by whenever I’m in the area for some treats. They also serve a breakfast and lunch menu, but I haven’t yet checked it out.
We recently paid a visit to Bread and Cie, and after browsing the various desserts, I chose a few to take home.
I got a chocolate macaron. No picture because I ate it in the car. I couldn’t resist. It was pretty big and tasty. The shell was chewy and not brittle like some places make it.
I also picked up a mini French baguette.
A slice of mango mousse cake
A small eclair. The small is still pretty big. I love the eclairs here. The cream and puff pastry are just right.
I also picked up a bag of assorted biscotti cookies. These weren’t like classic biscotti. The cookies were much crunchier and thinner. Still very enjoyable though and I liked that there was a variety of flavors in the bag.
Parking can be an issue in Hillcrest, but luckily Bread and Cie has its own parking lot for customers, and there is usually a space open. I’ve enjoyed all the desserts I try here, whether it be cake, cookies, croissants, cupcakes, etc.
