If The Great British Baking Bake Off was a coffee shop, it would basically be Elmendorf. This adorable spot sells a large variety of pastries (we like the lemon-thyme scones), and also doubles as a cookbook and baking supply store. There are only about six tables in the whole place, but if you can find a seat by the window, you’ll be saying “What a lovely scon!” in no time.
