Last year, fellow food-loving friends brought us a sampling of offerings from the tiny Capitol Hill bakery, Crumble & Flake, and since then we have been heading over whenever we can, especially on weekends when pistachio croissants make an appearance.  Admittedly, our taste buds are spoiled from having tasted the most delectably buttery goods in Parisian bakeries, so when we sing the praises of this patisserie, we mean it.  There are little creme puffs with a delightfully light crunch on top, pumped to order with delicious fillings like coconut, banana caramel, and lemon {all good and not too sweet}.  There are also flavor-packed macarons, and if you are a fan of macarons, it is difficult to find anything better.  One ever so slight drawback to such a tiny place is that it is often sold out by noon, so you may wish to call before you go.  And there may be a small line, but like all good things, it is definitely worth the wait.
