You could easily light up your Instagram feed with the photogenic doughnuts and beignets of Saint Honoré, but the recipes are backed up by some serious ingredients, including Tahitian vanilla bean and French Valrhona chocolate. The brioche dough is buttery and cake-like—not sticky sweet. Everything is made from scratch daily, including glazes, while taking temperature and other day-to-day variances into account. Between baking, decorating, and service, the shop is a full 24-hour operation. The "couture" line reinvents lemon tarts, tiramisu, and other traditional desserts in doughnut form, embellished with meringue horns, nuts, and gold flakes. The beignets, served three to an order, are fried lightly for a soft and chewy outer layer. The bombolonis are round Italian pastries made with ricotta and a combo of lemon and orange zest for a soft and sweet crunch. Shakes have similar over-the-top presentations, although it's hard to argue with a simple cup of La Colombe coffee with oat milk, cinnamon, and honey.
How to order: Place an order online for pickup (and grab a pizza too, since Saint Honoré is also home to the Pizza Anonymous ghost kitchen).
