Hands down, one of my favorite breakfast pastries in the city. I've had many, and I mean, many, morning pastries in the city, and Caffe Falai's Chocolate-Pear Turnover ($3) remains at the top of my list. This turnover is always flawlessly executed, with half a sweet pear smothered in dark chocolate, and nestled between the flaky, buttery sheets. Dusted in cocoa powder and powdered sugar, it's not too small and not too big, a fine way to start the morning with a cup of coffee. The turnover dough is crisp and light—it's a messy affair, but worthwhile.
