I’ve got a weakness for pastries and the ones here are some of the best I’ve had in town. The best of the best are the almond croissants and the chocolate almond croissants that are sweet enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, but subtle enough so you won’t regret it. You can’t go wrong with the buttery and flakey pain au chocolat ($2.70) and apple turnover ($2.70). Need more fruit in your pastries? Try the blueberry cream twist. It’s even large enough to share.
If you’re looking for something even sweeter, the richness of the kouign amann or macarons are worth a try. The raspberry chocolate tart may be light on raspberries, but the creamy, mousse-like center was excellent and the light, buttery crust was a fitting compliment.
I was less enthused by the Rustic sandwich. The ratio of bread to filling was way off, with the bread drowning out the flavors of the prosciutto, pesto, and mozzarella. On the rare occasion when there was a balanced bite, it was perfect, but more often than not each bite was nothing but bread.
Still, La Belle Terre is a local gem that’s perfect for a quick morning bite or a spot to grab something sweet anytime during the day.
