The baguettes receive most of the attention at this Gulf Gate shop, and for good reason, but Ooh La La’s other loaves deserve love. The challah, in particular, is a triumph, a bubble-textured mass of dough with a golden, nutty crust. Challah is meant to be pulled apart, not sliced, and it’s a good thing. You’ll be tearing this thing to pieces as soon as you get back to your front seat. The challah may not fit the French theme, but it makes great French toast the morning after. There’s also an alluring selection of croissants plain and flavored and classic French pastries.
