Canto 6 Bakery

Using a flaky, buttery dough as the base, the bakers at this J.P. hideaway craft thoughtful breakfast pastries—seasonal honey-ricotta-and-blood-orange square croissants; Brie-and-apricot-stuffed brioche—with all manner of creative embellishments. Prefer cake? Snag a slice of maple-caramelized apple bread with brown-sugar streusel.
