The trouble with our habit of eating mainly at night is that we tend to miss out on places that close early. So we had to make an extra effort in order to visit Levain Boulangerie on a recent weekend, since it only opens through 8 p.m.
Crunchy nut danish. Dozens of pastries, cookies and sandwiches are available here. They taste remarkably fresh, probably because the steady stream of customers forces the kitchen to keep churning out bread throughout the day.
Creamy walnut bun. We especially enjoyed the nut-based varieties, since generous amounts of real nuts were used to make them satisfyingly flavorful.
Caramel croissant. Sweet and sticky.
Custard donut. Fluffy bread, filled with buttery paste.
Durian melon bun. Not as pungent as some might fear.
Choco crunch. Loved the cute design, but I'm a sucker for stuff like this.
