Custard Brioche from Tazza 08-02-2009

Location: 311 Henry St. BK
Time: 4pm
People: RB and myself

Feelings: Tazza is a modern and cozy neighborhood enoteca/cafe/bakery that is famous for their coffee and pastries as well as wine and savory dishes. They have a large selection of panini, and I was mostly excited to see nutella panini on the menu. The place has a nice loungy atmosphere with quintessential Brooklyn Heights vibe, but I prefer to do a quick coffee and pastry take out on my way to the train station. Their coffee is slightly cheaper than Starbucks but possesses far better aroma and flavor. With a hand written note in the window stating "Absolutely NO Computers," you can tell this is no Starbucks.

While I am determined to try nutella panini in near future, RB and I tasted custard brioche this time. It was deliciously fresh bread with subtly sweet custard cream. I enjoyed scooping out the cream in the middle with little pieces of torn off brioche. It was a little fun and sweet bread bowl of heaven.

Tazza will be my neighborhood staple, and I will continue to try their various pastries and sweets. Oh I love this neighborhood!

Custard is so tasty! This place is on my list. Just tried Beard Papa's for the first time and was not disappointed.
