C.C Violin Patisserie & Café
Aromas of coffee, freshly baked cake and chocolate croissants drift through C.C Violin Patisserie & Café, but visual treats abound as well. Strawberries and blueberries nestle into fresh-fruit galettes, heaps of truffles form sweet mountains atop ceramic plates[R1] , and lacy meringues [R2] gaze out from glass apothecary jars. These from-scratch goodies spring from the sticky fingers of head pastry chef Brett McDonald[R3] , who occasionally shares his expertise by teaching classes such as Truffles and Wine[R4] , and Cupcakes for Kids[R5] . Guests can justify downing desserts with a dainty menu of lunch entrees, including quiche and chicken-and-brie sandwiches bookended by bread so thick and crusty you could use it to fill a sandwich. A violin and bow hang suspended on exposed-brick walls inside, and flowers beckon passersby from just beyond the full-length windows.
