Note: Availability may vary—call ahead to check!
The venerable bakeshop's crowd-favorite king cake, made with laminated brioche dough and rolled with apple and raisins, is festooned with gold and purple sugar and is now available by the slice or whole cake (the whole ones have beads!). Both offerings are available through Tuesday, February 25. They're known for selling out quickly, so get there early. Pre-orders are also welcomed—you can call the shop of your choice at least 48 hours in advance to reserve baked goods for pick-up. Beginning on Tuesday, February 11, they'll also fry up pillowy paçzki (Polish doughnuts traditionally served for Mardi Gras) filled with chocolate, vanilla bean, raspberry, lemon, strawberries and cream, and caramel apple at all three of their locations.
The French patisserie’s galette des rois, which comes equipped with a regal gold crown for one fortunate guest to wear, can be requested through special order until Tuesday, February 25.
