Wildflour Cafe + Bakery

Aside from Brasas, Wildflour Cafe + Bakery was the only restaurant I returned for lunch.  If you were on the cronut train, you can get your fill here as well.  Otherwise, they have exceptional salads, soups, and sandwiches too!  Great place for lunch!

Ginger Latte

The ginger flavor was very mild and not very sweet.  I like.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Tomato Soup, Caesar Salad

Good portion of everything!

Tomato Bisque

Very creamy, you can taste the tomato.  Delicious!

Caesar Salad

I prefer a little less dressing but good thing the dressing wasn't very thick!

Half would be just right.
I got too full and don't have any room left for any desserts... :(

Since I was too full my first visit and didn't get to try any of the desserts (and the cronut!) I vouched to return.  With desserts in mind, I only ordered a salad.  OMG the salad was huge!!!  I almost failed my desserts mission again but luckily I pushed through...

Mushroom Salad

I saw another customer ordered this at my last visit and was just mesmerized by this salad since

The Parmesan looked alarming at first but it was just right after tossing.

The mushroom was fresh, plump, and earthy...
and there is so much greens!!!

Yummy!!!

I can't compare the cronut here to Dominique Ansel Bakery (DAB) but I know they are very popular here as well.  I did visit DAB when I was in NYC last December but didn't wake up early enough (6:00 am in freezing cold NYC in December?  Are you joking?)  Based on my one-time visit with DAB, I think Wildflour Cafe + Bakery did an excellent job... Bonus points for zero wait time!  You can read more about my visit to DAB here.

The sticky buns and apple pie were all waving at me...

Focus!  I am here for the cronuts!!!

I got out of danger just in time and ordered the tres leche cronut
Since I know I am going to have cronut and get a sugar high, I opted for unsweetened earl grey tea

look at the glaze!  Shiny!

Flaky, crispy, delicious crust!
there was cream piped between the crust too...
but thankfully they were not too sweet.
(I have an aversion of crazily sweet desserts)
overall, I am very satisfied with this cronut :)

P.S. They actually took their cronut off the shelf since January 2014 since the other desserts need love too... NOOOOoooooo!!!  Hopefully, they will put it back on their menu soon!!!  I want my cronuts!!!
