TOUS LES JOURS BAKERY & CAFE

7151 Amador Plaza Rd, Dublin, CA 94568

Tous Les Jours is a self-serve French-Asian bakery . It has a wide variety of pastries, cakes, coffee, espressos, and savory food.The place was homely and inviting. The first thing you see when you walk in are the employee’s greetings and a compilation of mouth-watering desserts. The only difficult part of the self-serve experience was trying to lift the desserts without ruining their beautiful appearance.

Food:

We decided to try three different pastries: the Strawberry Croissant, the Chocolate Coronet, and the Fruit Tart. The Strawberry Croissant had a soft, flakey outside topped with a light whipped cream, complementing the taste of fresh strawberries. The Fruit Tart had a buttery crust that turned into a moist sweet bread as you worked your way to the middle. That, in tandem with the rich and creamy custard and fresh fruits, gave the pastry a sweet and tart flavor that melted in your mouth and had you craving more. The Chocolate Coronet had a crunchy outer shell that led into a cool, sweet cream on the inside.

Instagram Worthiness:

The amount of time and effort these bakers put into their designs, topping the fruit, and making each pastry symmetrical takes a great deal of skill. The strawberries inside the Strawberry Croissant, the juicy fruits atop the Fruit Tart and the intricate design of the Chocolate Coronet gave a distinctive quality to each pastry that captures the eye.

O’HONEY

3600 Fallon Rd, Dublin, CA

O’Honey makes an impact on Instagram culture and is known for their aesthetically-pleasing ice cream cups and beverages in lightbulb bottles. The perfect place to pose with a treat is right under the simple wood sign of their symbol with a bee in the middle or under their grass grown mural with the words “Room for Dessert.” The process of getting your treat is as simple as the decor.

Food:

We ordered the Cotton Milk Cream ice cream. Although it may be viewed as a bizarre combination, it possessed a subtle strawberry taste, which was pleasing. We also ordered the California Sunset drinks in both the mango pineapple and strawberry peach flavors. The drinks came in a lightbulb bottle and were both sweet and mildly fizzy. The strawberry peach flavored drink tasted like a sweet fruit punch and the mango pineapple had a more strong and tangy flavor.

Instagram Worthiness:

The beverages and ice cream pop out perfectly against the white walls of the creamery. The shakes are heavenly and photogenic.

ICICLES

600 Main St Suite F, Pleasanton, CA

Icicles’ claim to fame is their unique ice cream rolls. Out of all the places, the service here was the most enjoyable. First, you go up to the counter and order the flavor you want from the list on a board. Afterward, they call your name as they make the ice cream rolls. Watching the employees maneuver the tools as they make their art is the most exciting part.

Food:

Icicles has more to offer than just a pretty picture, with an large array of flavors, including dairy-free ice cream rolls for lactose intolerant or vegan customers.We ordered a thai-flavored ice cream topped with boba, and it had a creamy sweet taste, and the strawberry lemonade sorbet, which had a fresh and fruity flavor to it with a slight tinge of tanginess brought by the refreshing feeling of the lemonade.

Instagram Worthiness:

The perfectly formed rolls of ice cream, in addition to each customer’s choice of toppings, looks stellar on camera. Its simplicity is eye-catching with its beautiful array of color and innovative new concept.

INKLINGS

530 Main St, Pleasanton, CA

Walking into Inklings feels like entering the Hogwarts library, from the antique novels lining the wall to the bizarre flavors of coffee.

Food:

Inklings’ Lavender Latte has the right balance of sweetness. The unique flavor of lavender surprisingly compliments the strong coffee. A feather was sketched on top of the creamy foam. The store does offer to-go coffee, but between the cozy seating and magical decor, it’s definitely a place you’ll want to stay at.

Instagram Worthiness:

The frothy design and pretty presentation photographed against a background of vintage novels will be sure to get
