Croissant in Orange County
Hi, I used to enjoy flakey outside and moist inside Croissant in local bakery both up in San Frnacisco and Boston. When I was visiting my friend in West LA, he found Alamandine (spell) for me. I love their petite croissant but it's 40 miles away from where I live in Costa Mesa.
Would anyone out there know where I can have the quality croissant in Costa Mesa, Santa Ana, Irvine area?
CostCo makes surprisingly nice croissant for the price. But I need to wait in a long line and I can only pick up a dozen of them in plastic wrapped tray. I would like to spoil myself and just go to bakery/cafe and much on the heavenly croissant sipping a cup of white moca.
Thanks a bunch for your leads and tips.
I'll concur with this, but with a couple of caveats, because not EVERYTHING is good there. Their doughnuts are donuts plus "ugh", and the ham and cheese rolls can get greasy -- but the croissants are pretty good.
Be aware that they sell out of things very quickly, particularly at the weekend.
