This cute bakery, with café seating and a few outside tables, is a very dangerous place. Creamy quiche, cheesy calzones, and cured-salmon cornetto—a lush and flaky sandwich—preen alongside custardy fruit tarts, crispy cannoli, and dainty chocolate chip cookies. Pretty premade pizzettas are simply topped and heated to order. Our charred onion version was a bit too dense and chewy, but the rich focaccia ham-and-cheese panini was transcendent. Breakfast pastries included tart apricot, divine bittersweet chocolate, and bomboloni—lethal custard-stuffed doughnuts. (After 2 p.m., most pastries are only $2.) While 54 Mint does offer panna cotta and excellent premade salads, we suggest you never bring your gluten-free friends, and that you always leave with a floury loaf of country bread. Open Tues.–Sun. for breakfast and lunch.
