Few pastry chefs with the fine-dining pedigrees of husband-and-wife Jennifer and Eric Estrella would be caught turning out home-style cookies, cupcakes and pies. But who else could execute the classics so well? In a storefront that’s both kid-friendly and appropriate for adult-age lingerers, those pies are actually galettes made with butter-rich pastry, that cookie is crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, and the chocolate-chip scone, with a welcome back note of orange, goes perfectly with a cup of Metropolis coffee.
