|The croissant at Maison Villatte in Falmouth is worth the trip from Boston.|
But attention getters are the glass cases filled with all kinds of gorgeous French pastries - eclairs, brioche, quiche, breads, fruit tarts, savory tarts, calfoutis, cookies, macaroons.
The pièce de résistance are the croissants. Our plain croissant was an airy, buttery, chewy-in-a-tender-pastry-way masterpiece, better than the croissant we recall from Paris. We can also vouch for the chocolate croissant, a dark chocolate sweetness twisted with the buttery pastry.
The line at the counter never ceased. No surprise this place is such a hit. Boris Villatte is the Frenchman behind the bakery, which seats 20. Villatte is the former co-owner of PB Boulangerie Bistro, the renowned French bakery/restaurant in Wellfleet, which received a 28 Food rating from Zagat in the latest guide.
Maison Villatte is open Wednesday through Saturday, 7 AM-7 PM; and Sunday, 7 AM-5 PM.
