The rumors are true! Mr. Holmes Bakehouse of San Francisco dessert scene fame is opening its doors this morning in Highland Park. As you are reading this, I can guarantee that you are already too late for their famous Cruffins (muffin and croissant hybrid). They will only make a certain number each day, a new flavor each day, and they will even put a cap on the number you can purchase per person. Yep. There are rules, and they must be followed, and I must say, they are worth it. The cruffin isn’t just another hyped foodie treasure. It is the perfect cross between two classic desserts. And with flavors like Lemon Poppy, Bourbon Orange, Banana, and Toffee Hazelnut, you can’t go wrong. The hype is real, and the hype is warranted. With treats, coffee, plenty of photo ops, and our city’s very own neon sign, it’s safe to say #IGotBakedinLosAngeles, and I’m not mad about it.
We got to enjoy their Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie, with what seemed to be a thin layer of chocolate that permeated the entirety of the cookie, their Ham and Cheese Pastry, Chocolate Bread Pudding, Fruity Pebble Doughnut, Hazelnut Chocolate Doughnut, and a Dulce de Leche Churro Croissant.
And finally, ladies and gentlemen, THE CRUFFIN.
