Estelle's Bakery & Patisserie recently moved from K street in downtown Sacramento to the corner of Arden and Fulton in Arden-Arcade. The gorgeous French bakery features a wide variety of vibrant and decadent pastries both savory and sweet. In addition, they offer a gorgeous coffee and tea selection. If you're in the mood for a bite more than an afternoon pastry, they serve a lunch menu as well featuring generous portions of fresh salad greens and a half dozen sandwiches.
During my recent visit, I thoroughly enjoyed the Lemon Tart which is truly TART with a splash of lemon zest folded in to the creamy lemon curd and topped with torched meringue spheres.
I highly recommend the Bacon and Cheddar Scone which is also a bakery classic and is a fan favorite to almost everyone's palette. Estelle's B&C Scone is finished with a delicately sweet glaze that ties the salty notes of the scone base together with perfection.
Estelle's is a dream and a great stop for a summer treat.
