probably my absolute favorite thing about the new dover street market in new york (aside for their heartbreakingly beautiful array of sophie bille brahe pearl jewelry) is the glorious addition of rose bakery to the new york café scene. that innocent enough looking green tea cake slice packed a vibrant punch that made my tastebuds do the culinary version of a cartoonish whistle-blowing double take. and fresh mint leaves in my pot of mint tea? icing on the cake.
