I have always been skeptical when trying new restaurants. I am notorious in my family for being a picky eater, and maybe it’s because of the reputation, or maybe I am just picky, but whenever I try new foods or familiar foods in a different style, I am always hesitant and almost always let down.

A few days ago I went to try a bakery and cafe that is so new it doesn’t even have a website and is absent from all social media platforms except Facebook. I’d seen reviews for Beaumont Bakery and Cafe on Yelp and heard from a few people that I had to try it because it was so good. So, I decided to try this new hot spot for myself.

My group and I pulled up on a rainy Saturday to an modern and clean looking restaurant. When we entered, we were immediately immersed into the busy, but pleasant atmosphere. A bar full of beautiful pastries greeted us, and the pleasing decor made everything feel fun and light. The large windows allowed for natural light to fall over everyone and made the space feel open. Even if the food was awful, I would have enjoyed my overall experience there purely based off of this.

Nearly every table was packed, so we had to wait about 10 or 15 minutes to get a table. At our table we perused the menu and decided on the meals we should try. We began with drinks. Most of our group just wanted water, but I decided to get the hot chocolate and chai latte.

The drinks were promptly brought to us in the classic coffee shop wide mugs, which oddly made them that much more delicious. Sprinkled chocolate and cinnamon adorned the respective drinks, and a cream leaf graced the top. Each drink was the perfect temperature and was absolutely delicious. The chai latte had the perfect amount of cinnamon and cream and the hot chocolate wasn’t over chocolatey and had the perfect flavor. Personally, I preferred the chai latte over the hot chocolate, but as a lover of chai I’m very biased.

Next, we were brought our meals. We ordered the grilled cheese with a side of fries, ham and cheese croissant, quiche, breakfast croissant, french toast, orange roasted beet salad, and avocado toast.

The ham and cheese croissant was brought out first and the plate was empty in about two minutes. The croissant was beautiful and delicate and the ham and cheese perfectly complemented each other. Nothing overpowered the other, as that often happens with this meal, and I wish I had ordered another.

The grilled cheese was simply cheddar cheese on a house-made croissant loaf. The bread was perfectly buttered and crunchy and soft. Biting into the sandwich was a surprisingly delightful experience. My only criticism was that there was a bit too much cheese, though that’s just a personal preference. The fries on the side were homecut, and had the classic homecut downfall of being soggy. The fry sauce had a great kick to it, though it was an unappealing orange. Overall, the plate was good, but could definitely improve.

I then tried the breakfast croissant. It was one of the best things I have ever eaten and I cannot say one bad thing about it. Bacon that was cooked perfectly graced the bottom of the flaky croissant, fresh sliced avocado sat under fluffy and light eggs with sharp cheddar cheese and chives resting on top.

Then, the quiche. Ham and cheese in light and fluffy egg with delicious pastry made this one of my favorites. The simple and classic meal was brought to life with the simple but beautiful flavors and perfect textures.

The orange and beet salad was light, though it was a little heavy on the citrus and light on the greens. The dressing was soft and delicate. It was a beautiful and colorful bowl and is perfect for a light meal.

When I ordered the avocado toast I expected something simple. Instead, I was given a beautiful plate of – obviously – sliced avocado, roasted corn, cotija cheese, fresh chiles, microgreens aioli, queso cheese, all on two slices of super seeded bread and a poached egg on top. The egg was done to perfection and the chile slices were the perfect piquant to go with the creamy avocado. The microgreens didn’t overwhelm the rest of the meal and provided the perfect amount of crunch. The queso cheese was an added delightful surprise.

The french toast I already expected to be good, and I was not let down. The fruit was fresh and the bread was delicious. However, the true gem was the browned butter bourbon syrup and the bruleed banana on the side. The syrup was the greatest thing to have ever entered my mouth, and the banana added amazing flavor to the french toast.

We got pastries to go, which transported very well and were still good hours later. We got the pain au chocolat, or chocolate croissant, orange kouign amann, orange cruffin, and espresso chocolate chip cookie. The pain au chocolat was amazing with the perfect amount of chocolate in the center. The orange kouign amann had orange cream and zest and was held in beautiful pastry. The orange cruffin had orange zest in every layer, and was fabulous. My personal favorite was the espresso chocolate chip cookie. The flavor of espresso was amazing and the chocolate chips were of course good.

My whole experience at this restaurant, from the fun Jack Johnson music vibe, to the delightful little vase of flowers at our table, to the delicious food, was amazing. The ever skeptical eater was overjoyed with this food. The service was great even though the place was packed. Each plate averaged to be about 10 dollars. It also helps that they have free WiFi and a drive thru.

Open 7 to 7, Beaumont Bakery and Cafe is the new hot spot and is only about a 10 minute drive from Highland. Everyone should go at least once, though after they will surely want to go again.
