Marquet Patisserie is celebrating its 20th year in business. Though they have been on Court Street for quite a while, Marquet was one of the very first places of business on Smith Street when it was still funky. The owners were real pioneers. They opened up shop before any other restaurant had a presence on the strip.
I remember our surprise and thrill discovering this bakery for the first time. The Smith Street storefront was larger I think and they still did all the baking in the back.
Ah, those where the days!
