Simple Pleasures: Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins at Trois Pommes Patisserie


20090920tpsign.jpgThe indecisive sweet tooth will have a hard time at Trois Pommes Patisserie, the small Park Slope bakery whose displays gleam with croissants and cookies, cakes and pies, and so much more. And though I'd rarely opt for a muffin at a patisserie, I'm glad I was steered towards this French breakfast muffin ($2.25). Like a cake doughnut, in muffin form, it had a firm outside crunch and a dry, but somehow appealing, crumb, with a generous sugar coating and elusive whiffs of cinnamon and nutmeg. With a Stumptown cappuccino alongside, it's the perfect start to a day.
