There are a few things you can expect when you go to Mr. Holmes Bakehouse: A long line of people waiting for cruffins, the bakery inevitably running out of said cruffins, and people taking a lot of pictures inside next to the big neon sign. When you don’t get your cruffin and order other things from their pastry case, you’ll quickly forget what you originally came for because the filled donuts are outstanding and the other croissant varieties are super flaky and delicious. Don’t skip the chocolate chip cookie either - it’s unlike any you’ve had before and worth the line on it’s own.
