Croissant Brioche

For breakfast this morning, my wife and I ventured into Rice Village to visit one of our favorite French bakeries, Croissant Brioche (2435 Rice Boulevard). This small, unpretentious bakery is always overflowing with the fragrance of fresh-baked goods full of butter and rainbows.

I got my favorite sandwich: smoked salmon on a fresh croissant. The lean smoked salmon, crisp lettuce, and fresh tomatoes helps me forget about the fact that I'm also consuming about 4 tablespoons of glorious butter.

My wife had her usual plain croissant and chocolate eclair all washed down with black coffee. We shared the eclair but only after a sneaky move on my part and some very dirty looks on hers.
