Sweets I am thankful for

Orange-kissed cinnamon rolls from The Smile to Go—vegan, no less.
Teuscher champagne truffles. Perfection.
One Girl Cookies, in general.

Receiving the gift of Levain cookies.
Breakfast club with Bennie. Especially one that includes almond croissants at Lafayette.
Or gluttony at Doughnut Plant.
Peanut butter cookies from City Bakery. Sigh.
Butter Lane cupcakes. Take your pick.

And from Paris...

The untouchable praluline

Les escargot from Du Pain et des Idées.

Anything from Jean-Paul Hévin.

A light and lovely Gerard Mulot croissant.

And the Ispahan croissant from Pierre Hermé.

So, so much to thankful for.

Oh you, almond croissant

Lafayette. Have you been? It's pretty awesome. As buzzy as it is for dinner, go for breakfast. Jen Yee's pastries are divine.

There is no shortage to choose from.

But I can never neglect an almond croissant.
I cannot convey to you how soft, moist, sweet and almondy delicious and perfect it is. Go now.

If you go to Greenpoint...

Where?? Green-point! Just north of Williamsburg. Join all the hipsters for brunch at Five Leaves. The ricotta pancakes await.
And while you're (inevitably) waiting for a table, saunter over to Ovenly. Tres adorable; Brooklyn at its best.
