New Buffalo power breakfast at Lafayette

This morning, and in mornings to come, Public Espresso's third-wave coffee kiosk inside Hotel @ the Lafayette will bring to downtown Buffalo some of the finest breakfast pastries, bagels and treats in all the land, by which I mean Erie County.

Public Espresso offers fresh-roasted coffee made with an atomic-bomb-level focus on source materials, handling and production. Except the payload is caffeine.

Elm Street Bakery and BreadHive offer some of the best breakfast baked goods around.

Starting at 7 a.m. you can get them by lining up in the lobby of the hotel, 391 Washington St., at what used to the the reservation desk of a grand hotel. Now it's just a grand way to start your morning.

The assortment will change, said Elm Street Bakery executive pastry chef Luci Levere. This morning, the case holds BreadHive bagels, straight from the West Side, and these treats from Elm Street Bakery's East Aurora campus: hocolate dipped macaroons, sour cream pecan coffee cake, cinnamon-sugar baked doughnuts, cranberry-orange scones, cheddar-bacon corn muffin, banana bread, chocolate chip cookies, and individually-wrapped sea-salt caramels.

Next week could include ham-and-cheese croissants. In case you were wondering, Elm Street Bakery makes its own croissants.

Chocolate-dipped macaroons are one of the Elm Street Bakery offerings now at Public Espresso's Lafayette kiosk.
