Ellie's New Specialty Dessert: Kouign-amann!

This past year has been quite the exciting journey for our café, Ellie's Table. As we’ve settled into San Clemente’s tight-knit community, we’ve created a wonderful bond with our loyal customers. On October 17th we will be celebrating Eleanor's birthday. As many of you know, Ellie’s Table opened in homage to the owner’s grandmother, Eleanor Mastroianni, and her culinary talents. Our intention from the beginning has always been to maintain Ellie’s imaginative approach and aesthetic in all that we do. That essence, best put by our slogan: “Happiness is Homemade,” is why we value our customers and their input so much. Our story was built on family and we want to celebrate that as we continue to grow.23
One of our customers has been asking us to add a special dessert called Kouign-amann to our menu for quite some time now. We thought Ellie's birthday would be the perfect day to add our version of this Breton cake to our menu. Kouign-amann is a crusty, layered cake containing folds of bread dough, butter and sugar inside. As the cake bakes, the layers puff up and the sugar caramelizes. For our interpretation of this tasty sweet, we decided to add a crème brulee filling. We assure you, this is a treat you are going to want to taste. So drop by on October 17th to try this new menu item or order a batch for your upcoming holiday party. 4 We can’t thank you all enough for supporting Ellie’s Table and making it your neighborhood café. It has been an incredible adventure, and we’re excited to see what’s ahead. We want to also express our gratitude for suggesting this delicious dessert, we can’t wait to share our version with you all! 5
