There are few treats in Baltimore as simple as sitting outside of Bonaparte Breads on a warm fall day while the wind is blowing, the boats are rolling by, and you’re tucking into one of their delicious fruit tarts. Crispy crusts hold fresh, glazed fruit tucked inside a lovely vanilla pastry cream. How do they keep the crust from getting soggy, you ask? They coat the inside of the crust with a thin layer of chocolate, which also plays well with the pastry cream and fruit. This little treat is just one of many of their offerings. The palmieres, pan au chocolat, almond croissants, and their napoleons are all spectacular (not to mention their breads and quiches). If you’re out at Savage Mill, buying antiques, you can stop by their sister store for a quick bite.
