Monday Mornings at Chanson

Monday mornings are the absolute worst, but the final Monday morning of summer is just downright brutal.  I contemplated staying under the covers all day but I do have this thing called a job...  So I dragged myself out of bed and headed to Patisserie Chanson in hopes of some Monday motivation.

The aroma of fresh baked bread and coffee greeted me at the door; forcing my sleepy eyes open and luring me towards this flaky, sugar dusted Kougin Amann stuffed with tart Pistachio cream.  As I peeled apart each nutty, sweet layer I could feel my Monday blues start to melt away.

Of course this positive energy I was now feeling might not last all day so I grabbed a Lemon Yuzu tart for later just to be sure :)
