I am always on a look out for great bakeries and have been wanting to try Vernick Coffee Bar in Philadelphia for a while now. It is open from Monday through Friday, so if you come on the weekend, you are out of luck. We stopped here twice in one day, breakfast and lunch. We sampled a good range of the baked goods and my favorite was the croissant. If You could live at the Four Seasons, you will be set for breakfast , lunch and dinner with Vernick Fish and the Coffee bar and you will weight 1000 pounds!!

Great flaky buttery croissant.

Strawberry passion fruit kouign-amann
Too sugary. Kouign amann could already be sugary, why on earth you need powder sugar on top?

candied orange chocolate croissant
Very good orange chocolate flavor with a good texture.

7 Grain croissant
Nice texture and you feel better by eating a bit healthier.

pear confit tart
A little on the sweet side but good flavor.

Coffee chocolate scone
A little sweeter than I like. It had plenty of chocolate and coffee glaze.

Millionaire’s shortbread
Rich and tasty.

Crab avocado toast
Great crusty bread with spicy avocado and fresh sweet crab meat. What is there not to like?

Chilled shrimp, soba & sesame salad
My husband loved this dish.
