Finally made it in today (to Ovy's) and I wasn't disappointed. Bought three items from the jewel-like assortment in the case: A crème (layers of puff pastry filled with vanilla crème patisserie), a Dobos (layers of thin yellow sponge cake and chocolate cream topped with walnuts and caramel), and a bun filled with cheese and raisins. The very nice lady at the counter gave me a freebie, something they had just cooked up: a chubby profiterole/popover, filled with citrus and chamomile-infused whipped cream, fresh raspberries, and fresh blueberries. Absolutely delicious; subtle, and more tangy than sweet. Highly recommended.
Also, there was a big round table, formally set, in the front part of the store. The nice lady explained that they were doing a catering tasting in the shop this evening, and I snagged a menu. It ran the full gamut - canapes, several appetizers, a sorrel soup and an endive salad, and a halibut main, in addition to the pastries (the profiterole/popover was mentioned as the plated dessert, served with a chocolate sauce).
I'll be back. (After I finish that dobos.) BTW, the total including tax for the three items I bought was $9.72. Not cheap, but better-tasting and more bang for the buck than, say, a $3 donut. :lol:
UPDATE: I had the cheese & raisin but for breakfast today - really delicious. Still moist nearly 18 hours later, slightly sweet, with a hint of orange peel in the yeast dough. Good eats!
