Imagine the lush butteriness of a croissant crusted with cinnamon sugar and chocolate drizzle. And that’s just the start. They’ve also got plenty of other sweet goodies like seasonal scones, sticky buns, English muffins, blondies, cakes, French macarons, caneles, hand pies, fresh bread, and cakes. New mamas take note: There’s even “lactation cookies” with nutrients like flax and brewer’s yeast. Look for them at 720 E. Napa St., Sonoma, sweetpeanapa.com.
