Maison Kayser

Maison Kayser just opened in the Flatiron District and the pastries seemed to call my name as I walked by the shop window.  So many wonderful looking things to choose from...long crusty baguettes, big fluffy brioche, layers upon layers of millefieulle and chocolate mousse.  I finally decided on two classics a Creme Brulee and an Almond Croissant.

The croissant was different than most I've had... it was really flat and dense.  I was expecting a nice crunch on the outside edges but they were soft and the inside was quite doughy.  I missed pulling apart the flaky layers of pastry but enjoyed the sweet, nutty flavor of the bread.

The Creme Brulee was little bit sweeter than I had imagined but maintained that crispy top shell and creamy pudding center even after sitting in the case a while.  It's obvious they keep on top of the pastry freshness.  My goal is to eat my way through each and every item on display.  Let's call it the August of Kayser!
