There’s the cutest little bakery in North Kansas City that is owned by a darling Vietnamese couple called Le Monde Bakery. The husband has been hard at work behind the counter on whatever they just pulled out of the oven and the wife works the front. She is so lovely and is always sweet and cheery. They offer an assortment of absolutely delicious french baked goods, but they sell out fast every day, so early bird gets the goods here. My personal favorite is the ham and cheese croissant: hearty and delicious with fine cheeses and smoked meat.
