Kouign-Amann

A Specialty at C’est Cheese

Gooey. Chewy. Flakey. Cakey. Sugary. Salty. The Kouign-Amann (KWEEN ah mon) is a caramelized delight wrapped in a laminated pastry inside a popover-shaped enigma.

Rumored to have been created in Douarnenez, a little village in Finistère, Brittany, in the 1800s, it certainly lives up to its Breton name kouign (cake) amann (butter.) It may be difficult to remember one of the pronunciations bandied about, but the flavor will linger long in your memories. Locally, C’est Cheese bakes up these luxurious little breakfast buttery bites, but hurry… they are a best seller and they do disappear quickly.

C’est Cheese is located at 825 Santa Barbara St., Santa Barbara.
The bakery and café is open Mon–Sat 7am–6pm and Sun 8am–3pm.
805 965-0318; CestCheese.com.
