Where to Find...?

I am looking for two items: chocolate croissants and tea cookies. Where would one find these in Calgary? I know you can get tea cookies at Costco, but I can't go there by myself as I don't have a card. I'm sure I saw them somewhere else once, but I can't remember where.

This is what I mean when I say tea cookies:

    Ladybug Patisserie in the Calgary Farmers market has ready to eat chocolate croissants as well as frozen ones to bake at home.

      Apparently Eclair de Lune has chocolate croissants as well. I wasn't able to get any last time I was there as they were already sold. Apparently they sell out quickly, esp. on weekends. Manuel Latruwe has chocolate croissants as well.

        Itza Bakery in Devenish Building has them, the chocolate croissants as well, far tastiest I have tried in Calgary.

          Itza's pain au chocolat was absolutely amazing, even better than Ladybug's.

        Sourdough Bakery on 17th Ave SW has fantastic chocolate croissants.
        You might want to try Cookbook company for tea cookies.

          Thank you...I don't suppose there's anywhere closer to me for the chocolate croissants, huh? I live in Dover. Does Manuel Latruwe have parking? I don't like downtown because of the parking situation. I have an aversion to paying for it. :p

              On Saturdays, parking on the street, is free before 9am. Rustic Sourdough is open at 7:30am so you could park for free on street (they do have a parking spot at back - like 4 cars max) and get the best fresh baked 'pickin's'! Manuel has plenty of parking. Itza doesn't open until 9:00am on Sat.

              I just saw some tea cookies at the Dalhousie Chapters in lemon, raspberry and pumpkin spice for $7.99 a box. Other locations may also be carrying them.

                I just bought a box of the pumpkin spice tea cookies from Chapters and they're excellent. Rather pricey, just over a dozen cookies for that $7.99 but I don't know what the going rate is.
