At Terebinth: A Sweet Retreat, chefs gratify sweet teeth with from-scratch cakes, tarts, and breakfast pastries and enclose gourmet slow-roasted meats in freshly made breads. Silky layers of Italian chiffon cream caress The Bishop cake, whose fluffy batter enfolds a chocolate-truffle center ($5.25/slice). With its tropical, tangy custard, the key-lime tart recalls warm breezes and soul-baring conversations with parrots, whereas buttery raspberry scones ($2.25) daintily dive into house-made curds and preserves. Chefs also assemble sandwiches such as the Eric’s KC, hickory-smoked beef slathered with house-made barbecue sauce ($9.99).
Alternatively, patrons can opt for opulent wedding cakes such as the salted caramel ($5/person), whose placid butter-cream exterior belies the salted-caramel rivulets flowing just beneath the surface. Bakers are happy to whip up gluten-free batters and fulfill other special requests involving sweet tooth-appeasement.
Terebinth Patisserie & Bistro
A tree that thrives in desert areas, the terebinth has historically represented refuge and shade for weary travelers–and Terebinth Patisserie & Bistro hopes to provide a similar service. Only here, unlike for travelers in the desert, visitors to the bistro are greeted with a spread of fresh food and accompanying drinks. Handcrafted soups, salads, and five different paninis pair perfectly with espresso, or pots of specially selected tea. After main courses, French macaroons, cakes, and tarts claim any empty real estate that remains in bellies.
