Brioche is the primary focus for Nelly Mousseau and Pierre-Yves Henry, France natives who debuted charming Bree’osh bakery in ritzy Montecito Village in September 2015.
Their tiny cafe features photo-lined yellow walls, white tile floors decorated with black flowers, and umbrella-shaded patio seating. Locally roasted Handlebar coffee fuels a La Marzocco espresso machine. Still, people flock to Bree’osh for brioche pastries and sandwiches.
Since my last visit to Bree’osh, they’ve introduced brioche croissants, pain de chocolat, and best yet, limited-edition brioche cinnamon rolls ($4.20), flaky spirals with pinpoint caramelization, supple, buttery cores, and judicious sweetness. Choose a roll with or without raisins. These rolls need no embellishment, but if dried grapes are your jam, go for it.
