We tried this place three times. The first time because of our jet lag from CA we had a late start. We decided to walk to DA from Wall ST and by the time we got there was around 10:45 and obviously the baked goods were not as fresh. I tried to convince my husband to try the pastries, but his heart was set on the Chausson aux Pommes, so we had the following:
Chausson aux Pommes– He loved it
Pain au chocolat– It was OK, not as buttery as Payard and I prefer Payard’s chocolate to DA.
Ham and cheese croissant– It was OK, we should have asked them to warm it up. The best in this country so far is from Tartine bakery in SF.
DKA– Was great the first time, but the one we brought home lost the crunchiness due to the humidity in the air.
Cannelé de Bordeaux-Was great and one of the best we have had.
Second time we had:
Matcha Passion Fruit Blanc Manger– This was great because of the passion fruit. Put passion fruit in anything it will taste great.
Chocolate Caviar Tart– I had my heart set on the blackberry Pavlova, but the counter person suggested this one. It was OK, nothing amazing and had a little caramel inside.
Final stop on our last day we had:
Blueberry Blackberry Pavlova– The pavlova was on the sweet side but I really enjoyed the lemon cream and the berries.
Coconut Mango Religieuse -This was good, but on the sweet side.
Pistachio Sticky Bun– We had this at home, so I would feel a little better for leaving my favorite city and it was pretty good.
Chocolate pecan cookie– It was good, but on the sweet side
In conclusion a lot of their stuff would have been better if they cut a little sugar and added more butter.
