Goodbye, cinnamon rolls. I'm sorry, breakfast cereal. I never really liked you, oatmeal -- I just ate you because everyone said I should. There's a new way to make breakfast amazing -- it's not you, Quaker -- and it's at the Broadway Cafe. Allow me to introduce to you the gooey pumpkin butter bar.

The pumpkin butter bar tastes like the most decadent pumpkin pie to ever cross your lips. The top layer of pumpkin is whipped smooth. The bottom butter layer adds a richness that calls to mind a chess bar. The butter also brings salt that you can taste in the graham cracker crust. It's that small touch of savory that elevates this breakfast dessert. This isn't just a good piece of pastry for a coffee shop, it's a great pastry in a pastry shop.

The baked goods are also reasonably priced; most are between $1.50 and $2. The scones are square bricks that are not as dense as you might fear, and a hefty slice of apple cake has a nice thick bark and a bit of sweetness to go with big chunks of walnuts. While you're there, grab a croissant. Light and flaky, it's the perfect bread for one of Broadway Cafe's sandwiches. But only after you've had a gooey pumpkin butter bar.
