Former Blue Water Grill pastry chef Nathaniel Meads is behind this Lakeview pastry shop, and he’s managed to convince hungry wanderers that there is indeed a reason to navigate the odd side entrance and look beyond the shop’s dreary tinted windows. Incredibly friendly counter help makes up for the rather dark atmosphere, and solid coffee cakes and streusel-topped fruit tarts make nice latte companions. Chocolate proves the best of the macaron varieties, while filled croissants outshine even their classic sibling.
