This Cafe for Sale was started by two people who fell in love with puff pastry overseas and decided to bring the concept to Austin.  After much trial and error, they developed the perfect puff pastry, including both the "original" classic French puff pastry and the mouth-watering "cookie top."  All recipes, and training, will pass to the new owner of this Cafe for Sale. The margins on this product are fantastic, almost one-of-a-kind. This opens up all kinds of discounting and donating opportunities that might hurt the bottom line of most other restaurants.

A quick look at the puff pastry Cafe for Sale pictures tells you everything. This is a gorgeous, premium product, an affordable luxury. Cream puffs are classic French pastries dating back to the French Renaissance. Pate a choux, or light pastry dough, is made from flour cooked in butter and a milk/water mixture. With the addition of eggs, this mixture forms a thick paste, giving the cream puff shell its special hollow and airy structure when baked. The shells are then filled with a variety of cheesecake, fresh whipped cream, and custard flavors. This menu at the Cafe for Sale is pitch perfect and includes a rotation of seasonal flavors in addition to the classics.
