“If you’re driving along Interstate 91 between Exits 3 and 4 in the morning and you smell something wonderful, it’s the croissants baking at this State Street staple. The plain croissant — no butter, no jam — is reason enough to visit, but there are many other baked delights to make you drool.”
New Haven, (203) 789-8589 (marjolainepastry.com) According to the menu, one dessert is named after legendary tragic actress Sarah Bernhardt because it’s so good “it will move you to tears.” We don’t doubt it. Simply glancing over Marjolaine’s cake list—where descriptions like “rich, smooth,” “deep, dark,” “light” and “feathery” abound—will make your mouth water. Tasting a piece is a whole other story. Chocoholics, order the chocolate mousse cake or Velvet, a flourless chocolate cake. For a lighter dessert, there’s strawberry shortcake or lemon chiffon. And remember—bring tissues!”
