Easily one of the most anticipated bakery openings of the year, Craftsman and Wolves opened it’s doors prior to launching to give the neighborhood just a taste. That day, I started with the cocoa + carrot muffin, and it was good. Incredibly moist (almost wet, in fact) and incredibly rich.

On my next  visit, I tried a hazelnut scone. Savoury yes, but not remarkable enough to be my favorite scone in the city. Arizmendi remains the leader, there.

Perhaps my favorite of their many creations is the passionfruit croissant, a perfectly executed croissant with a classic, crispy exterior and a wonderfully airy, layered center. The croissant is in turn covered with a passionfruit glaze and the marriage of that and the sesame seeds is truly special.
