Lately we've been getting more and more comments about the East Brother Light Station mini croissantscroissants we serve on the island.  As one guest wrote in an online review, "The croissant rolls were so crispy on the outside and soft on the inside that we felt the innkeepers had been up very early in the morning to achieve such a perfect roll."

The real credit belongs to Galaxy Desserts of Richmond and its co-founders Jean-Yves Charon and Paul Levitan.

“You can sit and watch big ships and little seals cruise by, or gaze at the reposing birds or the rushing tide below the dock. There’s a sense of intimacy here and a feeling of remoteness, even though it’s just a short distance to the mainland.”

- Doug McConnell, Bay Area Backroads
