Du Jour Bakery is a great addition to the Park Slope neighborhood. We passed by this charming place during our week-end trip to Carroll Gardens, and rolled our eyes when we saw the inviting display case full of tasty looking pastries.
The brunch menu is quite simple but everything is tempting, you’ll find most of the American classics and a few surprises. Also, the prices are not steep. We had a delicious brunch: a combo of three pastries ($8) and the pear granola.
We went with a Monkey Bread, a Boston Cream Donut, and a Blueberry Muffin.
The Monkey Bread was a true discovery for me, this sticky indulgence looked a bit dry, but the brioche was anything but—and at the base of that was a caramelized bottom.
I had no idea what could boston cream be, but my partner had lugged her red Samsonites in Boston for a while and was an expert in the field. The vanilla custard was mind-blowing and the dough was tasty.
The muffin tasted wholesome and the juicy blueberry flavor really shined through.
The granola was freaking delicious, it was slighlty salty, with just enough sweetness to make it over the top. Poached pears and colorful pomegranate were the perfect match.
Du Jour Bakery makes really great pastries and is entirely worth a trip if you’re passing by Carroll Gardens. Vera and TJ Obias are undoubtedly talented chefs.
