209 Castro Street, Mountain View
Alexander’s Patisserie opened in 2014 in Mountain View, and in addition to its full line of French pastries and macarons, they also carry a line of truffles in 25 flavors, ranging from classics like Fleur de Sel Caramel, through tropical fruits, teas, and an extensive selection of alcohol-enhanced flavors, to the more unusual like honey fennel pollen and hemp seed with almond praline.
The truffles are tasty, beautiful hand-decorated orbs. Depending on your point of reference, they resemble planets or superballs. They have no preservatives, so they are best enjoyed within 1-2 weeks of purchase.
