The Red Hook

I was 30 the first time I went to Paris. Having studied French in high school the trip was like a dream come true for me. There were many magical discoveries on that trip but one stand out was the bakeries. I had to stop into every corner patisserie I came upon. My favorite was this little bakery and café near my hotel where I could grab a café au lait and a pan au chocolat. Heavenly!

The Red Hook cafe and bakery in Ferndale evokes that same charm for me. I love stopping in for an amazing pour over and a buttery shortbread cookie!
