Sunflour Baking Company

My writing club buddy Lisa told me about a new bakery in Elizabeth. While Mom was still asleep in my guest room, I drove over and got us a little Monday morning breakfast sampler. If only every week started this way!

I went a little overboard and purchased four things for the two of us to split -- we are suckers for variety. The haul: a cherry almond scone, a chocolate croissant, a raspberry "pop tart," and (for a little something savory) a ham and cheddar muffin.

Then I took a few minutes to heat up the lot in my toaster oven, which I'm convinced is essential for true enjoyment of all baked goods -- especially scones. (Please note the extra color on the scone is from my toaster oven, not the bakery.)
The verdict? DELICIOUSNESS!!! Picking a favorite seems cruel, but I might have to go with the chocolate croissant. It wasn't unique, just a perfect rendition of the classic pastry in a lovely scroll-like shape. Second place would be the pop tart, which was decadently buttery and had the perfect burst of gooey raspberry flavor.

Check it out! It's on the corner of Pecan and 7th Streets in the shopping center across from Showmars on 7th. Another clever thing they offer is 4-inch pies for $6. They had coconut cream, banana cream and chocolate cream. I will be back...too bad it's not closer to my house. Then again, maybe that's not such a bad thing!

Sounds and looks delish! Glad to know it's close -- but not TOO close -- to me.
