  1. Naidre's on Henry & Sackett has Balthazar croissants. The ones at Sweet Melissa, on Court, are pretty good too. Ditto Marquet, also on Court.

    1. Marquet on Court at Warren are the best in the neighborhood.

      1. Well I think the ones at the french bistro near Stinky (its on the corner) on Smith street has the best - I think the ones at marquet are not so hot. I for the life of me cant rememebr the name of the place on smith but you cant miss it. It looks sort of cheesy on the outside but its the besterests.

          Do you possibly mean Provence en Boite?

            you bet. they have dreamy croissants.

        2. I recommend you try Patisserie Colson on 9th Street and 6th Ave. in Park Slope if it's not too late. I travel to Paris on business a lot and these are the closest I've found in the area.

            i second that recommendation but its to far for a morning walk from carroll gardens (for me).

          2. I'm too late to help you, but wanted to let others know of the following two places with excellent croissant. Almondine Bakery in DUMBO ( and Delices de Paris in South Slope are wonderful places. Almondine has better atmosphere and seating, but Delices has the added bonus of great roule au raisin. Enjoy!
