Honoré has a unique style—the pastries tend to have a darker color, more crackly texture, and noticable caramelization. In fact, salt and caramel are prominent here; popular items include sea salt caramel tarts and salted caramel macarons.
The overall selection at Honoré is a little smaller than what you’ll find at Café Besalu, Bakery Nouveau, and Crumble & Flake, but the quality is high. You’ll generally find two workers to greet you at the front counter, one ready at the espresso machine, and the other to help you with your food order. One showcase focuses primarily on pastries, while another holds more of the cakes and desserts. Macarons are a colorful favorite here.
