Sandrine French Pastry and Chocolate - Kelowna, BC
I hope all of you enjoyed your long weekend. Here’s a quick post while I'm in Kelowna. As everyone else is in a breakfast meeting this A.M., I sneak over to Sandrine French Pastry and Chocolate for a quick coffee and some morning snacks. Shhh, I’ll be back before anyone notices.
Flakey and buttery, with some chunks of dark chocolate hiding inside. I really like pain au chocolat in the morning because it’s mostly pastry with just a hint of semi sweet chocolate.
Apricot Croissant ($2.85)
Looks like sunny side up egg yolks, no? This is the sweetest selection of the morning with the apricot halves on a thin bed of custardy goodness. My neighbour has an apricot tree. I don’t think she pruned it for this season, and it is enormous. I can’t image how she maintains this stone fruit behemoth. I love trees that produce edibles, but I dread cleaning up all the spent fruit that has dropped to the ground at the end of the summer.
I stealthily make it back to my seat with coffee in-hand. The actual meeting hasn’t technically begun yet. Phew! Meeting-mates are still finishing their omelettes and fruit cups...but I have buttery croissants.
