Short Cake Restaurant Review

: Short Cake at The Original Farmer's Market offers sweet and savory items like twice-baked brioche with almond cream, a Comté and thyme croissant, feta scallion scones, Anson Mills corn muffins with cheddar and Hatch chiles, and chocolate cardamom cream cake. (It launched as the companion bakery to Nancy Silverton and the late Amy Pressman's now-closed burger spot, Short Order.) A fig-pecan bun is a twist on an old favorite, and the bacon and leek quiche is tempting to take home for a family brunch (and claim it as your own); ditto on the babka cakes. For lunch, you can find salads, open-face sandwiches bathed in béchamel sauce, and a pleasant onion tart. For the a.m., the artistically presented espresso drinks are among the best around.
