Nothing like breakfast with the girls to fire up the sweet tooth. After an incredible Friday night dinner at Little Giant, Amee, Jules and I were in no position to show restraint. So we decided to skip our go-to City Bakery and get some croissants in the Willage.
Amee and Jules had never been to Patisserie Claude before so I was a little nervous for their verdict. Predictably, there were no complaints. These croissants kick ass.
The plain croissants are buttery, flakey, light and chewy. Beautiful.
The pain au chocolat is also a beautiful creation of flakey pastry layers. Except it's also pumped through with chocolate. And when you get there in the morning, it's still warm and melty from the oven. Just look at that photo. Delicious.
