PLEAISSANT CROISSANTS BAKERY- TEMPE
If you're in the area, check this place out! And then either stay in store for a cup of delicious coffee or go two stores down to Bunna coffee-- best start to your day!
I've been frequenting this small bakery for years, and wanted to share the goodness with you. If you want croissants, this is the place to go. They have terrific breakfast and Lunch sandwiches too. I love to get a egg, veggie & cheese (your choice of american, cheddar, jalapeno jack, provolone, or swiss-- you can add your choice of meat as well) before I go to work. Allow some time as they're currently expanding to a new space and have two workers in store. I'm sure that will be remedied once they move to the bigger space (just 3-4 doors down).
However, P.Croissant is known for their filled croissants-- they serve at least 10-12 of the following flavors: almond, apple, apricot, bavarian cream, blueberry, blueberry cream cheese, cherry, chocolate chip, cinnamon, cinnamon apple, cinnamon raisin, cream cheese, chocolate bavarian cream, lemon, peanut butter, raspberry, raspberry cream cheese, strawberry, strawberry cream cheese. They are absolutely delectable-- a couple of my favorites are almond, strawberry cream cheese, and bavarian cream.

The almond is my favorite. We only indulge a couple times a year but they are really delicious when we do.
I was wondering if they'd moved into a new space. Noticed the new sign driving home from work a couple weeks ago. Are they going with a more upscale look or sticking with the spartan style that they've had?
I was just reminiscing about Char's and Siamese Cat on another thread when I remembered this place and the recent thread about it. It is in my old neighborhood and has been open in the same strip center since at least 1987. Amazing!!! I'm so happy to hear they are still at it. I've never been big on filled croissants but I love a good classic version and Plaissant's were superb! Flaky, crisp, buttery all at once ... I wonder how they've done it with such limited hours and at such a location with little traffic generated by the many other businesses that have opened and closed there through the years?
