Today is Robin’s 43rd anniversary of her 29th birthday so when I asked her what she wanted for breakfast, she said a quiche from Janjou Pâtisserie. That sounded good, so off we went. (It’s only 2 blocks away from us!) If anything, it has gotten better. The Quiche Lorraine we had was delicious. The coffee is still excellent – we bought a pound – and the fruit tart we had was scrumptious. You must try it when you are in Boise. Make a special trip. You’ll love it. 5-Stars all the way. Enjoy these photos!
I went to Janjou Pâtisserie and got us each a plain croissant. Then added some Sun Valley Spicy Garlic Mustard, Ham, Cheese and Fresh Greens. Nice that the garlic in the mustard did not over power the wonderful, fresh baked croissant. The spiciness of the mustard and the sweetness added just enough variation to the sandwich for one to say, “What was that?” A really good combination of sandwich goodies.

A great start to the Valentines Day week long celebration!! (a 5 Hour Roasted Duck for Robin’s Valentines Dinner.) But for now, I know how she likes Idaho trout and Whole Foods here in Boise had a fairly good price on some fresh trout. The photo here is the trout prepped and ready to bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until the center is fork hot. You don’t want to over cook the fish. Here is what we had –
Steamed Green Beans with Roasted Garlic and Orange
Here are some photos of the dinner. Left-Click to see enlarged. Enjoy! Sorry there are no leftovers. And, if you would like to try the tarts, go to Janjou Pâtisserie at 18th and State in the Albertsons Center next to Shu’s Running.
What can I say? Except that the biggest problem with Janjou Pâtisserie is that they are just 1 1/2 blocks away from our front door! That’s jogging distance. A slow jog! If you have been following these posts, and many of you have, then you can see the absolutely delicious, landlocked cruise food that they offer! Here is some more that we photographed this morning. Oh, and that is the other reason we need to go back – I need more photos. Enjoy these. We will see you at Janjou Pâtisserie the next time. The Chocolate Tartlet is super awesome. And so is the Quiche Lorraine. Cheers!
Look at the photos enlarged – Left-Click the photo – and grab a fork. Yum-O! This is way too much fun.
OK! We’re hooked! We had Marnie join us this morning at Janjou Pâtisserie in the Albertson’s Shopping Center at 18th and State Streets in Boise. Oh such a delight! It is soooooooo good! The last time we were there, we rated it a 4-Star and it was well worth it. Now that we have been back, it is a 4+-Star and headed for the top 5-Star rate. The food is awesome and they try very hard to keep the ingredients local and all natural. They succeed! We urge you to try them out and let them know that you heard about them here on this blog. In the meantime, enjoy these photos! Cheers. You can Left-Click any of the photos to see them full screen.
See what you are missing? When – not IF – you go, let us know you are buying. We’ll meet you there. Cheers!
Robin and I treated ourselves to a great experience. We went to the Janjou Pâtisserie at 1754 W State Street, Boise this morning. (I have added their link in the sidebar and a hot link there also.) This is some of the best Quiche I have eaten, and I have had some good Quiche. Goat Cheese and Leek Quiche ($8.99). I do not like goat cheese but this was awesome and I will get it again. The Bostock pastry ($3.50) was awesome with just a hint of rose-water. Robin had an 8 oz Mocha coffee ($3.65) and I had a 12 oz Americano ($2.95). Both of these coffees were great and went very well with our “treats”. Husband and wife team, Chuck Gabbitas – Owner and Moshit Mizrachi-Gabbitas – Owner/Chef are doing a super great job for only being open for 7 days. For an eatery of this type, they definitely rate a 4-Star (out of 5) and maybe a 5. We will have to return. They are planning to offer in the future, maybe wine, soups and sandwiches. That would be interesting. Their website is Janjou Pâtisserie and is worth looking at. Call your order in and pick it up at the pâtisserie. Here are some photos that Robin took. Enjoy and let them know you saw this review here. Cheers! (Left-Click to see a larger view of the photos.)
