Executive Pastry Chef/Owner Bettina Pope's downtown favorite La Lune Sucree features sweet and savory crepes, gourmet baguette sandwiches, quiches, and a variety of croissants, tarts and scones.
From the restaurant's website:
"Downtown visitors, residents, businesses and SJSU faculty, staff and students now have a little corner of Europe in their backyard with the opening of La Lune Sucrée, a European Pastry Café! Translated to 'The Sweet Moon', La Lune Sucrée’s passion is pastries! In addition to a wide selection of light, flakey and not too sweet pastries baked fresh daily, La Lune Sucrée also serves gourmet sandwiches, sweet and savory crepes, salad, soup, quiche – many of these with vegetarian options; cappuccino, espresso, tea and French hot chocolate in a quaint bistro setting."
"For something smaller, don’t miss Pope’s cannelles ($2.25), a French version of a cinnamon twist only more delicate, crispier and moister than the American version. La Lune Sucree’s sandwiches are worth seeking out, too. They’re made in the minimal Parisian style, just a fresh baguette layered with a few ingredients."
