little t american baker is now open in the Clinton Condominiums building! There’s already quite a bit of buzz about it around town and we had the pleasure of dining there this past sunny Saturday afternoon. YUM! The bread used for the sandwiches was so tasty! (My husband is French and I think whenever he says bread is good it’s a big compliment.)
I also highly recommend the currant doughnut! It was soft and light and had just the right amount of sweetness. It practically melts in your mouth. I can’t wait to go back over there to try some of their other offerings. I may just head over right now…
