Located on the side of the historic Red Brick Bakery in Newmarket, Crust & Co. Artisan Baking emits tantalizing smells of freshly baked breads and pastries. Open Friday to Sunday from 6am to 12pm, owners Sebastien Pisasale and Lara Sample are sure to have something tasty to please!
Taken from their Facebook page: Sebastien draws on his French and Italian heritage to produce a delicious range from crusty sourdough to flaky croissants while Lara, of Chouquette Patisserie Boulangerie (New Farm), brings her experience running a successful artisan bakery business.
Be sure to get there early! Although most likely there will already be a line up when you arrive 😉
Once inside, there is a small counter lined with all the available delicacies, including traditional baguettes, sour dough loaves, multiple types of croissants, brioches, danishes, tarts, quiches, biscotti, muesli, and more. And yes, there is even coffee!
We got a number of items to try, and none of them disappointed!
Savoury breakfast brioche with mushroom and egg
All the croissants were amazing, I believe we picked up one of each.
The plain croissant – flaky and buttery
Pistachio croissant with spiced syrup. Subtle, yet flavourful and decadent!
Chocolate hazelnut croissant… mmm.
Trio: Pistachio, plain chocolate, and hazelnut chocolate.
They have a selection of fruit danishes, our favourite – blueberry
Traditional baguette ($3) that we finished before the day was over. Next time, we are definitely trying the sour dough!
The best part? Crust & Co. is definitely an affordable, regular treat with items ranging from $2.50 and up! It has become a favourite for us and we certainly look forward to every chance to visit!
Stop by Crust & Co. in the early morning Friday to Sunday for a delicious breakfast and stock up on beautiful breads and pastries for the rest of the weekend! 😉
