Walking into Mozart Bakery, I was hit with an overwhelming selection of pastries and baked goods. From entire loaves of bread to cakes to mini pastries and sandwiches, I didn’t know where to start. Customers are able to select their own choices and place them in paper bags and plates before bringing them up to the counter. The service is slightly questionable, as instead of serving their customers, the workers chose to restock the shelves before attending to their clients. There were a variety of seating options, giving customers the choice of sitting out in the open and mingling with their friends or sitting in a more secluded area for studying and privacy. The music, while calming, is extremely loud, but as Mozart Bakery is in a larger space, it isn’t too difficult to hold a conversation with others.
I ended up selecting the strawberry fruit bite for $1.79 and the sausage croquette for $2.50. The two are made with seemingly similar dough – a flaky, croissant-like pastry. The fruit bite is dusted with powdered sugar and a sweet custard, with a strawberry coated in a sugar sauce. The sausage croquette is sprinkled with crispy bits of dough and a ketchup-like sauce. While both items are good, they aren’t anything out of the ordinary. I would go back, but perhaps try some different items.
