$8 for $16 Worth of European-Style Café Food
The menu includes paninis with fontina cheese and roasted eggplant and tomatoes ($12.50), turkey, gruyere, and greens on a croissant ($7.50), and café salads with goat cheese, almonds, cucumbers, tomatoes, and olives ($8).
The New York Times has noted that “Mrs. London's would be much more at home on the Right Bank of Paris than in a resort town upstate.” The mention of Paris is fitting, as husband-and-wife team Wendy and Michael London specialize in French-inspired pastries. They bake using high-quality ingredients from local farmers, organic grains, Plugra butter, and Valrhona chocolate. Their chocolate mousse cake, filled with silken chocolate, is served with a white rum sabayon. Their bakery team even works through the night to ensure that fresh morning pastries, such as brioches, canneles, and croissants, are ready to greet the sun.
They also offer a café menu, which proffers savory European dishes such as tomato-zucchini quiche and croques filled with turkey or ham and gruyere. Staffers serve each meal in the bakery’s 1800s Americana-inspired shop, which boasts Brunschwig & Fils wallpaper, neo-classical mirrors, and replica Argand chandeliers that were featured in the film Amistad.
