Ever since I found out last week that Mr. Holmes Bakehouse was coming to the Tustin District, my inner foodie heart was oh-so-happy. Couldn’t. stop. thinking. about. their. pastries.
I was elated to attend their media event this past Thursday. Located in the Union Market, I finally have a draw to go there. I mean.. would you look at that sign? Say yes to carbs.
The packaging was too gorgeous with their classic “I got baked in LA” gold font written on the side of the boxes. Will we get our own Orange County packaging eventually? Only time will tell…
My favorites were.. the chocolate chunk cookie (because..duh), the matcha mustache cream donut (a grand opening special in collaboration with Milk Box Bar), their new salted caramel apple cake-like creation, and the ferrero rocher croissant (omgah whut?!).
So thank you, Mr. Holmes for moving in quick. I appreciate it.
I was also able to finish it all off with Milk Box Bar’s matcha.. which is apparently the “Whole Foods of the boba world.” All natural teas and boba that is not as unhealthy? I’ll take it. Seeing as I have boba cravings about every other day or so.. I try to limit it to 2x a month. Now I won’t feel quite so bad.
And with that.. I leave you with the motto: Do it for the ‘gram.
