In addition to the irresistible baguettes and sourdough here, there are daily bread specials. An uni grilled cheese slathers raclette, caramelized onion, and fermented chili powder between brioche; while a labneh roasted vegetable salad is wholesome with cauliflower, carrot, and chickpeas. A citrus savarin with almond liqueur makes for a divine finish.
