Croissant in Park Slope

parkerbk Nov 9, 2007 05:38 AM

Where would anyone suggest to find a really good croissant( plain, almond, chocolate) in Park Slope, delicious, flaky, buttery the real deal

    Colson is the best, but Cousin John's on 7th and Berkeley makes a mean almond croissant if you can get there before they run out in the mornings.

      I also enjoy the whole wheat croissants (sounds boring, but yummy) at Cousin John's.

      There's a tiny French bakery called Parco (on 7th Ave, around 14th St.) that has good croissants. The patisserie on 9th St (betw. 5th & 6th Ave--I forget the name) is supposed to be good as well.

          I think the other one is called Colson Patisserie. I would also try Sweet Melissa, although the prices are a bit high.

                Colson is at the corner of 9th St. & 6th Ave. They make a pretty good pain chocolat.

          Its more in the Prospect Heights area, but Joyce on Vanderbilt has delicious croissants in many different varieties.
