My friend, Triskell, has been raving about them since they moved to their new location on Magazine Street, next to Rum House (entrance on Ninth Street). So of course, when she asked for a Sunday coffee and baked goods date...how could I resist?
Although Levee is new to the Magazine Street area, Levee has been baking for the public since 2017, where the owner started selling on Dryades Street. What essentially looks to be self taught, Christina Balzebre, quite literally works magic into every bite. Who hasn't had breads or baked goods from just about everywhere? But have you ever had a peach and blueberry galette with the sugar edges cooked so perfectly that they add a Utopian amount of crunch to the edges? I hadn't...until today.

remember the full name of this one, but it was fucking amazing for anyone who loves garlic), Rye Flour Chocolate Chip Blondie
Sunday, 10 am - 3 pm. Take a trip over to the Channel and try them out. It's perfect for a quick run in and run out if you need, but the spot is also great to meet up for some coffee talk with friends or for those days of self-care and mindfulness. Make sure you bring your stretchy pants and a good book. I know I will next time!
