Je Ne Sais Quoi
Perfect For:Serious Take-Out OperationCoffee & A Light Bite
This French patisserie on Connecticut Ave has a certain je ne sais quoi about it (did we use that right?). A display case full of beautiful pastries greets you as soon as you walk in the snug space, and homemade brioche, flaky almond croissants, and apple tarts glow under heated lights. The best part is that everything here tastes as good as it looks. There are limited seats inside so you can opt for a to-go order, but on warmer days, we like to take advantage of the tables that line the sidewalk to enjoy a pastry and coffee.
