Salty Tart Bakery's pastry cream-filled brioche: 100 Favorite Dishes, No. 80

Salty Tart Bakery just may have created the perfect breakfast pastry. Bagels, scones, and muffins are all fine and good, but once you indulge in this sweet and tender brioche bun you'll never go back to your boring old coffee-shop standby again.    

Salty Tart Bakery's pastry cream-filled brioche: 100 Favorite Dishes, No. 80

This rich, buttery brioche roll would be perfectly delicious on its own, but the addition of a velvety vanilla bean pastry cream filling takes it to a whole other level. The pastry cream is rich, custardy, packed with real vanilla bean, and kissed with a hint of lemon zest. Not only is this treat dreamily filled, it is also dredged in sugar, giving it a sinful sweetness and irresistible, subtle crunch. It's the kind of pastry you'll finish and wish you'd ordered two. Maybe three. With its simple flavors done exceptionally well, this breakfast roll does not disappoint and pairs perfectly with your favorite cup of coffee. You'll never want to grab for that tired old scone again.
