Shop globally, eat locally?

Do those chocolate croissants at Nordstrom's chic espresso bar taste familiar?

That's because they come from the not-so-chic Bakery on the Common in Natick Center, a few miles down the street..

The cafe supplies several baked goods on offer at the mall coffee bar, other noshes like hummus with pita triangles come from Collection restaurants, cafe staff said.

Natick Collection is known for its upscale shops, but happily price inflation doesn't seem to have hit the pastry department. The Nordstrom/Bakery on the Common chocolate croissant was $1.75, plus tax, no more than it costs in Natick center.
