Alforno is decked out in baked decadence offering everything from fresh-out-of-oven bread loaves to savoury and sweet scones and mile-high cakes. Among all of the fruity muffins, pain au chocolates, and cinnamon buns, make sure to get your hands on a cream puff. They’re currently filling puffs with hazelnut cream, whipped caramel, raspberry cream, and chocolate.

Sidewalk Citizen

Warning: this is a place where diets go to die. The pain au chocolate sinfully drips with chocolate, the danishes burst with fruit, the brownie is a gooey fudge square, and the crusty mile-long cheese sticks will take your appetite to new lengths.
