I’ve previously visited the Broadway location of Baguette & Co last year, where I’ve tried their Chocolate Success and Lemon Tart, both of which were quite good. They apparently have another location on Davie. Similar to their Broadway location, they serve up a variety of pastries, cakes, and sandwiches. I got their Quiche Lorraine and Apricot Almond Pie. I also asked for their Royal Chocolate Cake, but unfortunately the staff made a mistake (and I wasn’t paying attention) for when I got home, I found that I got the Chocolate Success again. Oh well.
Quiche Lorraine ($5.95):
This contained ham and eggs, and was topped with some herbs (I think it was rosemary/thyme). The filling itself was delicious, and was creamy with plenty of ham (and would have been 4/5 on its own). I really didn’t like the herbs however: they were dry and the flavour was very strong and really did not go well with the rest of the dish.
Apricot Almond Pie ($4.75):
This consisted of a crust that’s filled with almond paste, apricot, and almonds. The filling was very flavourful: they have a generous amount of almond paste and apricrots, and lightly sweet. The bottom crust was a bit tough and gummy, but the edges were flaky.
Chocolate Success ($5):
I had actually asked for the Royal Chocolate cake, since I’ve already had this one before at the Broadway location, but unfortunately the staff made a mistake and gave me this cake instead (oh well). This consisted of two thin layers of cake sandwiching chocolate mousse, and is coated in another shell of chocolate. The cake was moist and tender, while the mousse as luscious and rich. I do find the outer chocolate to be a tad waxy.
Although I was disappointed not to have gotten the Royal Chocolate cake, I did still really enjoy my visit to Baguette & Co. The food were fairly tasty, and the prices are very reasonable. This is definitely worth a visit.
