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

      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.

                  yeah what im talking about is not a croissant but an almond meal cookie with chocolate ganache in it. THATS outrageous

          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.
