Thanks to the model train in the window, we’ve walked by this place a few times thinking it was a hobby shop even though it is in fact a bakery. There’s usually a line, but the bread and pastries are worth it, and it gives you time to dream about starting your own service that’ll be the “Uber of bread delivery.” Take a few of their phenomenal lemon tarts or a loaf of onion sesame bread to a dinner party, and you’ll be a hit - more so than if you brought a toy train to play with instead.
