At Buvette, the Carrot Cake Spoon Bread ($4) is both on the brunch menu and served throughout the day every day of the week. It's served warm with a crunchy sugar-dusted surface and a mound of smooth whipped cream cheese frosting. They sometimes serve it with a silky whipped cream fraiche, and I'm happy with either. This requires a spoon; it's a perfect, gentle sweet snack for one with espresso on the side. The spoon bread is dotted in chopped walnuts and carrots grated thinly enough to blend, but not so thin that you can't see the streaks throughout the dense, moist crumb. Comfort food gone elegant!
