“...perfect cannele cakes at the Colville Street Patisserie”
The Art of Eating Magazine
Molly Wizenberg, December 2014
“A number of American bakers , particularily on the West Coast, are also turning out canneles in the true Bordelais spirit. ... Colville St Patisserie, in the Washington wine country town of Walla Walla, makes a cannele with a crackling crust and an almost airy center.”

“Start your day with a breakfast of good strong coffee and intricate pastries that rival the best of Seattle’s artisan bakeries at sun-drenched Colville Street Patisserie.”

“I try and pick out something from the gloriously dizzying pastry case every time I go in, but today I repeated an order: Kouign Amman (KWEEN ah-MAHN). There are some wonderful versions of this pastry in Seattle, but my favorite is here in downtown Walla Walla. If you’ve never had one, imagine a cross between a really great piece of buttered toast and a croissant; layers of flaky pastry dough with caramelized sugar and sea salt.”

“Want to treat yourself to what a visiting French friend described as 'the best croissant I’ve had since I was a child?' That too is in Walla Walla.”

“This exquisite bakery wouldn't be out of place in Paris. Its pastry case fills with dazzling treats that taste as good as they look. Summer mornings are made for the pastries that let the sweet flavor of their fruit fillings shine through. All peaches should get this kind of tender and flaky stage.”

“As I am always looking to share simply luxurious destinations here on the blog, I have been eagerly waiting to share and introduce readers to Colville St. Patisserie. After all, it is their chocolat chaud that puts all other versions of hot chocolate to shame (even, I must say, surpasses Angelina’s in Paris), and I look forward each week to indulging in a cup of my own.”
