When I walked into Bouchon Bakery, I was overwhelmed by the variety of pastries. Immediately I drooled over the macarons. They were huge, about 4 times bigger than the french macarons you find in Paris. I thought I'd order only 2 but I couldn't decide and ended up with 5 (sigh...I have no self control when it comes to macarons). Then I saw the almond chocolate croissants - ooh I had to try that too. D got the pineapple croissant, chocolate black cherry scone and a raisin scone.
We went outside where they had some benches and tables set up to enjoy the sunshine and snacks.
Yup this was all for us. The macarons were slightly crisp yet nice and chewy on the inside where the buttercream flavours melded with the shells. They were a bit too big to eat in one go especially when we had so many other pastries to try. The chocolate almond croissant was flaky and buttery yet crisp, we really enjoyed it while the pineapple croissant had a very sweet concentrated pineapple flavour. The chocolate black cherry scone was amazing while the raisin scone was only so so. I will be back for the croissants and the chocolate black cherry scone. It's good place to stop for coffee and a snack in between wine tastings.
