Breakfast at OWL Bakery

We had breakfast at OWL Bakery this morning and it was such a treat. I wish it could be part of our daily routine. The morning buns had already sold out by the time we arrived around 9:45am, but we were able to snag an almond rose croissant, cardamom bun, chocolate chip cookie and a piece of their savory beet chèvre quiche. We also got coffee, of course. They have really good coffee.
