Am I missing something here? Every day, it's like this! The line out the door of this bakery in the 6th arrondissement. I'm not knocking it; I assume everything in there must be wonderful, but when I've peeked in from time to time, all I see are bagels, brownies, donuts and muffins.
I guess I just don't get too many American bakery cravings when, about two steps away, I can buy a crêpe made-to-order, or a croissant or baguette the likes of which I've not yet found in the U.S.
Maybe those good folks making the brownies and muffins can come over to New York and bake us some good baguettes!
