Hotel Atwater

Excellent ham & cheese croissant thing at Hotel Atwater on Catalina Island!

KD’s Donuts 

KD’s Donuts for breakfast! Tried one of their “Filled Croissants” for only $1.75. They have cream cheese; cream cheese with random fruit fillings; or ham & cheese ($3.25).  These croissants are huge! Roughly the size of a deflated football, or maybe a calzone someone sat on. You can elect to have it warmed (microwaved), which I opted for. The croissant itself seemed fresh and somewhat flaky. Nothing really remarkable about it. Eating the first half it seemed as if there was no cream cheese filling! It wasn’t until about half way through that I began to discern a slight cream cheese flavor and creamy sensation in my mouth. It’s possible that whatever cream cheese was present within just wound up weeping into the bottom dough layer during the heating process. It was a decent enough breakfast for me at a good price, just be advised that the term “filled” might be a misnomer. 

Edelweiss Bakery

Here’s a great pecan bar from Edelweiss Bakery.  This place has been in business since 1967.  Two locations in San Diego with a history of more than three decades serving some pretty elite clientele.  What they put out is just amazing!
