About Darby's

From the minds behind Sorella, The Dairy and Rye by the Water, this bakery and Oyster bar is nothing short of gorgeous.

Why is it so special?

Looks can be deceiving; this tiny unassuming honey cake which, when cut, reveals a luscious filling of creamy tonka bean custard. I'd liken the texture to that of a canele; with a sweet and chewy crust that gives way to a cool, subtly sweet filling.
