Confituras started out selling their biscuits and jellies at farmer’s markets and has since opened their own small bake shop just off South Lamar. The biscuits are the perfect vehicle to try all of the seasonal jelly flavors, which range from classics like blackberry and Meyer lemon curd to more creative combinations, like orange vanilla bean marmalade. You can get your biscuits to go, but there are also a few tables in the shop where you can have a quick breakfast or snack if you aren’t in a rush.
