Maybe you’ve heard of their apple fritters, which are as big as your head. Or maybe you’re a fan of the original “cronut,” a delicious, flaky, chewy croissant turned into a glazed sweet treat. Or maybe, like Dayton native and recent Golden Globe award-winner Allison Janney, you’re a fan of their sand tarts. Either way, we can’t recommend this place enough.
