With so many great brunch options in LA, I find that when the weekend finally rolls around I am at a loss when deciding where to brunch. All the places that I tell myself I really want to visit are suddenly lost from my memory.
If you find yourself trying to choose a place to brunch do yourself a favor and remember this picture of these incredible pastries and treat yourself to brunch at Cook’s County.
I saw donut on the menu and I was sold. Seeing all of the other delectable pastries options only confirmed that I would be ordering an entire basket of goodies. I don’t generally order jelly donuts, they just aren’t my jam, however the Cook’s County strawberry rhubarb jelly filling really enticed me. The donut was nicely fried with a light crust and delicate doughy center. The strawberry rhubarb filling was a great counterpart to the fried dough. Light, fresh and screaming sunshine weather. My only complaint is that there was only a tiny dollop of jelly. I with the donut was stuffed throughout with that delicious strawberry rhubarb jelly.
I’m ready for this jelly!
Coffee cake muffin. Let’s pause right there. If you read this blog you know I love things in muffin form or as I like to call it “muffinized”. The muffin was light, fluffy and bursting with cinnamon. The muffin top was wonderfully thick and crunch. This was a coffee cake accurately captured in a muffin body.
Ginger scone with lemon curd and clotted cream, you’ll never find a scone so delicate and moist while at the same time have a great crumble and crunch. Specks of crystalized ginger are dotted throughout the scone giving it a nice sweet and spicy chew. The tangy lemon curd was a great accompaniment and the clotted cream made it all the more decadent.
Buttermilk biscuit is served with a thick pat of butter tucked in the middle. It creates a hidden surpise of melty, salty, gooey dough. I loved it. It reminded me of my favorite part of a short stack of pancakes when the butter melts through the center of the stack.
Their basket of pastries will knock your socks off (and there are plenty of incredible savory items too! try the smoked trout tartine).
