Best Phoenix Croissant?

I'm always in search of a great croissant. The best I have found so far is at Wildflower Bread Company. This one is great, don't get me wrong. I just like options. Does anyone have any ideas?

      Wildflower is so mediocre compared to this local joint in So Tempe. Bummer, the name has escaped me. It is on the NW corner of Rural & Elliot, same corner as DQ. Delicious variety of croissants, you won't be disappointed. Also, their breakfasts are quite good.

        That would be Pleaisaant Crossaint (aka P Crossaint).

          Don't ever get lunch at this place - its a joke. The one time I did it was horrible and the croissant wasn't fresh or remarkable. I've had decent ones at AJ's.

        What about Scratch...I think I have seen the Gent that was baking at Au Petit over at Scratch early in the am baking over there now?

          the Ones at Lola's on camleback and 10th street I belive look awesome but haven't tried one yet

          Another strong recommendation for APF and Lola's.

          APF has stuffed croissants (get the almond-- not the best, but it's quite good).

          Lola's doesn't have filled ones that I've ever seen, but they do make excellent coffees and serve their nice fat crispy croissants with jam and butter. Lola's is better for sitting and sipping with a good friend or stuff to read.

            oryza they actually do have filled choc ones for sure. I see them most mornings

        3. I have always enjoyed Chef Vincent's croissants. I do not know the schedule of his "farmer's market," but they should be starting soon. Also, his bistro usually has baked goods.

          1. I also like the croissants at Lee's sandwiches on Dobson and Warner.

              Had a good one at the Paris Cafe- a small breakfast/lunch place in the Design Center off Hayden and near Northsight.

            2. MJ croissants are great (available most days at LGO). Oh, and I like the spinach-feta croissant at AJ's :)

              1. I love the French bakery in Fountain Hills!!! Croissants are like they are made in Paris.

                  Andreoli at 90th/Via Linda. Honey glazed with hint of nutella ones melt in your mouth! Plain are amazing as well.
