French bakery/café Bien Cuit opened in summer 2011, and quickly became a neighborhood go-to for fresh and authentic staples like baguettes and croissants. Décor-wise, exposed brick walls, a wood-and-marble counter, large windows, and unadorned tables feel clean and rustic. The only pops of color come from the artfully-prepared desserts inside the display case, like a recent banana and bourbon tart with chocolate and an almond pear danish. Traditional French breads like a sourdough miche and baguette are baked three times daily and are used in the café’s sandwiches, including a turkey and swiss croissant, and vegetarian and non-vegetarian frittata sandwiches. Many of the ingredients are local. The passable coffee is ethically sourced and roasted by Brooklyn Roasting Company. Yams from upstate make their way into a lightly spiced maple-and-yam Danish, which rounds out the bakery’s stellar selection of breakfast pastries.
