A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMG_0553Maison Villatte opened lsummer 2012 on Main Street in Falmouth. Townies and tourists alike flocked to this new place like bees to honey. The line during peak season is out the door and around the block.

IMG_0563The craze for Maison Villatte hasn’t died down, this past summer, there are days you get in, and they have run out of croissants.

IMG_0564We’ve come in the fall, off peak season, and there is still a little bit of a line. The locals love this place. The one thing I might change is that they should have menus by the door, so those waiting in line can figure out what they want and be prepared when they are asked if they are being helped.

IMG_0559Ask you wait in line, you can look over all of the delicious pastries they have to offer.

IMG_0558Villatte, the baker and owner, is also the owner of the popular Wellfleet bakery PB Boulangerie and Bistro. Villatte trained in France and in 2005, he came to the US and worked at the Wynn in Las Vegas.

IMG_0557It’s hard not to drool all over the case, everything looks delicious.

IMG_0556There are certainly more dessert options than lunch options.

IMG_0560The caprese sandwich is pre made. The bread is quite tasty, crusty on the outside and soft on the inside, just like a good French bread should be.

IMG_0566The potato and leek soup is creamy and warm, but lacks flavor and spice.

IMG_0561The ham and cheese croissant is delicious.

IMG_0565They warmed it up for me, and the croissant couldn’t be tastier, crisp on the outside, buttery and flaky on the inside.

IMG_0567Something sweet at the end of every meal – we get the almond croissant. It’s like I’ve died and gone to heaven. I love the flavor and the texture, it’s finished before I even know what happened. Lunch was on the pricey side, for about $40, I felt like I should have been getting something more. The service was ok, and we had to bus our own tables – when we sat down the people before us had really left a mess.  There is a fair amount of seating inside as well as tables outside if the weather is nice. Certainly worth a stop in if you haven’t been, there isn’t anything else around that is like it.
