There are no real dessert only coffee houses here, BUT I've been to NYC and read about them in SF....N.O. has some too....
What are your favorites....
There is a place in NYC near Central Park that does wonderful L'Notre (?) pastries.
I like mocha eclairs.
Anyone Have a favorite pastry they have just with coffee? Most of the time too rich for dessert.

It's not so rich, but the only time I usually have biscotti is when I am in a coffee house. I make it once in a blue moon.

Hello Palmier, and welcome to cheftalk.com. I, myself like all kinds of coffee dippers. It has to be hard to absorb the coffee without breaking and complement the taste of the coffee without taking away from the flavor. And the coffee has to be well rounded from the bean field to the cup.
As you can see I take my coffee drinking very serious. not to mention my taste for food. It's like being in love. You must always make passion and intigrity become one. Then and only then will you find true romance.

For Christmas this season I have orders for upwards of 200# of Biscotti. I think this may be my million dollar idea. They are just sweet enough and dunk well with either coffe or wine or scotch or anything!

Deviation from the coffee companion biscotti -- has anyone played around with the savory biscotti idea? Does it really fly?

I did croutons once with a cornbread that came out a little too dry and heavy. I tossed the cubes in butter and baked them, but I'm sure it would have made great biscotti, too.
