Boonzaaijer’s Dutch Bakery serves good coffee with a side of temptation

We find impulse purchases all too easy at Boonzaaijer’s Dutch Bakery. We pick up a Dutch bullet ($3.75/12-ounce) and muddled blackberry latte ($4.25/16-ounce) to go with a few delicate baked goods. The former’s heavy, roasty and grassy — exactly what one might hope for in a bulletproof coffee, its coconut oil and sweet cream butter blended into light-roast Pikes Perk coffee. The latter’s a delight, bursting with fruit, its syrup sipping true and not oversweet. We buy two treats planned — a Napoleon ($3.75) and a marzipan baton ($4.25) — and succumb to the temptation of a hazelnut meringue sandwiching mocha cream ($1.99). The Napoleon stands out with crisp, flaky puff pastry enclosing vanilla Bavarian cream, beautifully iced. We enjoy the strong almond flavor of the marzipan coating around delicate, light vanilla sponge cake and buttercream. The meringue’s cooked to a perfect dry crumble, no cracks visible. Its hazelnut flavor ranks lovely, especially with rich mocha buttercream.
