Which do you like when faced with these choices: Texture or power? Elegance or strength? Beguiling softness or bold dominance? Does the same side of each question attract you more than the other?

Marcel’s Bakery and Cafe

In the dead of night, when all of Lake County is fast asleep, Pascal Hue De Laroque is already hard at work. In the long, dark hours before sunrise, he’s busy baking up some of Lake County’s best pastries and breads. But right now it’s twelve hours later, and Pascal sits at an outdoor table, shaded from the afternoon sun. He leans back and crosses his legs, talking with his hands as much as words. Tattoos peek out from under his “Marcel’s Bakery and Café” t-shirt. His dark hair and dark beard match the black Converse on his feet. Everything about him is easygoing, positive, and upbeat.
