bakery lorraine ~ san antonio, tx

I had heard this place was stellar, and I predicted such when I read that the owners were first inspired by THE Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bakery in Yountville…but I was BLOWN AWAY when I first stepped inside this gorgeous bakery. I made the joke that I felt like I had just stepped inside a Nancy Meyers movie and I think I did--it reminded me of Diane Keatons' kitchen in Something's Gotta Give or Meryl Streep's bakery in It's Complicated. The breads and pastries took me back to France, and the macarons made me so happy, but honestly the ambience of this place topped all.  Bravo San Antonio. I was blown away by the Pearl Brewery development, an amazing new urbanist community composed of well-branded, gorgeous eateries and shops that are only independent local merchants. Wow, what an amazing model!
