The first thing you notice when you walk into Bakery La Brioche is the distinctive smell of caramelized honey. Then, you begin to take in the wall-to-wall selection of pastries, cakes, and cookies. It’s pure sensory overload, and it’s absolutely delightful. Despite the French-sounding name, Russian sweets are the specialty at this bakery. Traditional layered cakes like medovik, made from thin layers of honey cake and sour cream filling, are sold by the pound, though you can also pick up individual slices. You can get a shocking number of desserts for under $10 here, so try everything that looks good and share it with someone you like. Or don’t.
