Having polished off the cruffin we sampled other pastries, which included an apricot danish, salted caramel doughnut, and white chocolate blueberry brioche. Memorable highlights included the danishes’ fresh sweet apricot marmalade, doughnut’s rich caramel filling, and brioche’s soft sweet eggy bread. Despite our positive experience with the cruffin, we were actually more impressed with the overall quality and freshness of these other pastries.
So is the cruffin worthy of all the larger than life hype? Not exactly, but what truly is? However, when accounting for all the pastries as a whole, Mr Holmes’ offerings were definitely worth the morning sacrifice and long wait.
