“Classical Parisian pâtisserie and boulangerie in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley? You heard that right. The team here pulls the meanest espresso in the Shenandoah Valley; owner and head baker Bryan Hollar’s croissant is the stuff of legends. They’re flaky, and just chewy enough. Make sure to get there on the earlier side for breakfast—it’s not uncommon for Réunion to sell out of its most popular items.” – VOUGE Magazine
