For our second breakfast of our annual family vacation, we strolled down the street to Le Panier.  Of course since Le Panier is a very French bakery, they are known for their croissants and patisseries (pastries).  There is a section of tables to eat in at or you can take out (which is what we did by bringing it back to our hotel room).

Melody ordered the Croissant a la Framboise (Raspberry).  She said it was delicious but a little sticky from the raspberry filling.

Emily ate parts of the Tarte aux pommes (Apple).  This was sweet and flaky.

Joyce had the rich and decadent Napoleon pastry.

I had the popular Pain au Chocolat (Chocolate).  This was similar to Melody’s, but with chocolate inside instead of raspberry.  It was oh so delicious!

Just before visiting Le Panier, we happened to stop by the first Starbucks a couple stores down for drinks to go with our croissants/pastries.  Here are my parents and Melody in front of the store with our drinks:

I ordered a Caramel Macchiato, Joyce had a White Chocolate Mocha, Melody had the Caramel Apple Spice, and Emily had the Hot Chocolate.

The drinks tasted the same as any other Starbucks, but just the novelty of visiting the first Starbucks made the trip unique.  Maybe I should have bought a First Starbucks branded coffee mug as a souvenir.
