A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

La Brioche is the New England Culinary School’s bakery. Students come in an prepare foods to be sold here (students also work the counter). The website says that they arrive at 4am to start making pastries. We got the apple strudel, the raspberry twist and the lemon poppy scone. The restaurant also serves sandwiches at lunchtime. There were a few other people there when we arrived, it wasn’t crowded. You order at the counter where all your choices are nicely displayed behind a glass case, and you seat yourself at one of maybe 10 tables. There isn’t very much else on Main Street. It sort of had this old time feel to the area. There is a place called the Skinny Pancake next door that is a creperie if you wanted another option. There is metered parking right out front so if you’re getting take out, you can run in and run out.

The lemon poppy seed scone was dense but moist, definitely a sit in the bottom of your stomach. It has a nice lemon flavor but could perhaps stand to have some sort of topping added on it to make it moister. The raspberry twist was flakey and moist but it could have used more filling inside. Lastly, the apple strudel was good once you got through all the flakey dough on the outside. Once you got to the cinnamon apple inside it was delicious.
