Corner View: Best Kept Secret

There are many hidden gems in little Salt Lake City, UT.  The best kept secret?  Do I really want to reveal it?

I have already told you about Bruges Waffles on my blog, so I guess that doesn't qualify...although those waffles are divine.

One of my favorite little hidden places is called The Oaks.  It is tradition in my family to visit every chance we get.  They have outdoor tables, and it is right on the river.  It is beautiful to sit and listen/watch.  The many humming birds that come to visit their feeders are quite delightful.  We love it there!  (And the food isn't half bad either...)
No pictures of the humming birds this time.  It started to rain and I wasn't fast enough with my camera!
But, the true best kept secret of Salt Lake is something that I don't have a picture for.  Pierre and I love, Love, LOVE pain au chocolat pastries.  Love them.  
We eat them daily when in France. 
Salt Lake City has quite a few yummy bakeries, but none that 
could come close to the fabulousness of the true pain au chocolat.

Until now.

We have found the most authentic pain au chocolat in Salt Lake City.  We haven't told anyone where.  It is our little secret, but today I'll share it with you.

The best pain au chocolat in Salt Lake City....the Target bakery in Sandy.  Yes, that's right...I said Target.  Amazing, unexpected, and perfection in my mouth.
(No picture today...I am trying so hard to lose this baby weight and I couldn't tempt myself!)  But, don't tell me I didn't let you in on my little secret.
Just don't tell anyone else...

For more best kept secrets, please visit Jane.

Enjoy your Wednesday!
