We already know that everything is coming up…with everything seasoning these days.
But I saw a photo recently on Instagram that I just couldn’t scroll by idly: a cream cheese-filled everything croissant from one of my local New Jersey bakeries, Montclair Bread Co. And so, like the dedicated professional I am, packed up my 3-month-old and 4-year-old daughters (still in their pajamas) and drove over early on Sunday morning to check out this pastry.
No surprise – it was amazing. Unique. Finger-licking good. There might have been just a tad too much cream cheese in the middle. But really – is that even a complaint? The pastry was flaky and perfect, and not only was the topping everything, but it was a spicy everything topping, which gave it just that little bit of extra oomph. I loved it. (Note to self: add some spice to everything topping!)
We might have also picked up a few fabulous donuts, which the bakery is known for (try the Nutella! and the tres leches!). In short: It was an early morning errand well worth it.
