Citysearch Editorial Review – Textbook French baguettes and vintage appeal lure locals to this West Town carb emporium, located in an 100-plus-year-old building. The bakery distinguishes itself from the pack with its airy, addictive French baguettes and vintage charm. The owner, who supplied bread to top local restaurants for years before going solo, kept the vintage, fleur de lis-embossed woodwork, sea green tiling, mirrors and fixtures from the previous tenant, also a bakery. Artsy neighborhood types sip Intelligentsia coffee at the butcher block-style tables and moan over culture-crossing pastries like crumb-topped peach cardamom tarts and a strudel-like French pastry called a jalousie, which, in a tip of the hat to the bakery's Latin American neighbors, is stuffed with guava puree and cream cheese.
