This Beverly Boulevard farm to table operation opened last year. I stopped by for brunch on a Saturday, and the pastries alone were worth the trip. The pastry basket isn't actually a basket; it's a tray, but the day I went it came with a fresh jelly doughnut, a blueberry muffin, a cheese biscuit and a ginger scone. These were all excellent, but the scone impressed me the most. Never have I had a scone that was so flaky, so melt in the mouth delicious. The doughnut was slightly larger than a golf ball and stuffed with a thick, nicely tart strawberry rhubarb jam.
The baked goods also shined as part of the breakfast entrees. The baked pancake is a unique and delicious beast, a puffy pancake with crisp edges and a light and fluffy center emphasizing the "cake" in pancake.
The house made bagel was delicious, though a bit hard on the outside, but the smoked trout it was served with was bland.
Overall, the sweet outshined the savory, but most everything was good. I went back for lunch, and definitely enjoyed it, but nothing was quite as great as their various brunch pastries.
