Only on the weekends, Sweet Melissa Patisserie turns out Bee Stings for $3.50 apiece. Think golden rounds of brioche dough, baked and filled with a cool vanilla pastry cream. Top halves are dipped in a shiny honey-kissed caramel glaze and finished with silvered almonds for a bit of crunch. Dessert or breakfast, you decide. The brioche dough runs on the firm and heavy side, though perhaps that is necessary to hold all that pastry cream!
