Open 8 to 8 daily, one can stop in for virtually any meal of the day. Bread is baked fresh each day, and one can choose from a variety of delicious meats and Vietnamese toppings such as pickled daikon, pickled carrot, or the simpler black pepper and mayo.

Around the turn of the millennium, Fabien Goury and Yasmine Bohsali opened Main Street Bistro as a simple shop where neighbors could stop in for a cup of coffee and a chocolate-filled croissant. Popularity came quickly, and soon the bakery had expanded into a full-fledged bistro and added two more locations, including a Richardson outpost with a greenery-framed patio. The current owners, the Marshi family, took over in 2007. To American ears today, the word bistro might conjure up a decidedly upscale eatery, but in their menu, the Marshi family say they’re reaching back to an older sense of the term: a low-key place serving “flavorful home-style fare of generous portions accompanied by modest wines.” Three meals a day, they blend French tradition with Southwestern favorites, clasping hand-formed Angus burgers in brioche rolls, pairing crab-stuffed salmon with Southwest-style corn, and placing quiche Lorraine on the breakfast menu alongside migas and eggs benedict. A full bar completes the bistro experience with a variety of beverage choices.
Different culinary traditions approach sweets differently, whether augmenting the natural sweetness of fruits by dusting them with sugar to make a tart or creating the rich creaminess of a slice of cheesecake from scratch. When the owners of La Rosette began compiling recipes for their bakery, they didn’t want to focus on just one of these indulgent categories, but instead chose to incorporate the best flavors from Hispanic, American, and European dessert traditions. The result is a mix of cakes, petit fours, and pastries. La Rosette's bakers present creamy forkfuls of tres leches strawberry mousse cake or their Oreo-filled bon bons—which are even more decadent than Oreo-filled Oreos. They can also create classics for customer shindigs, carefully baking a family’s holiday pumpkin pie or birthday cake—the latter they offer in more than 20 flavors.
The chefs manning Fadia?s Deli & Bakery's spice-filled kitchen pack classic Lebanese flavors into freshly made phyllo wrappings, creating sweet bites and savory pies alongside a slate of pita-welcoming dips for their convenient take-out service. All of the shop?s sandwiches, baked goods, and deli items contain no preservatives, allowing the rich aromas of dates and honey, creamy tahini, and spicy shawarma sauces to take the spotlight like Where?s Waldo at a lab-coat fashion show.
