Pastries by Chef Jessica

Missing Chef Jessica Lopez's pastry case, filled with fresh baked pastries made by hand every day, is not something easily done on trips to Coffeehouse at Caroline. Enjoy everything from seasonal bundt cakes and classic chocolate chip cookies to exotic matcha rice crispy treats and sophisticated almond croissants. Give in to temptation and try them all, we won't judge.
