Best Cupcake2012 Finalist See 2012’s Winner »

Owner John Kraus describes the bakery's les petits gateaux as "what a cupcake aspires to be." The dishes are certainly worth a bit of extra cash (they cost about $5 each) to try out. Prick your fork into a snowball-like half-sphere of coconut cream and a glorious mango-passion fruit puree oozes out like a runny egg yolk. Bite into a cylinder of pistachio Bavarian cream to find a thick, strawberry-rhubarb jam; with coconut-almond granola sprinkled on top, it suggests a haute revamp of fruit cobbler. Among the tiny lemon meringues and cheesecakes, a chocolate tart is stacked with thumb-sized profiteroles, like a tabletop set for a Barbie dolls' tea. And it's just as delightful to eat.
