Best croissant in LA?
i'm looking for croissants like the perfect ones at Fauchon in NY... with an extremely high real butter content that almost warrants the $4.50 price. the LaBrea Bakery ones are ok if heated in the oven to crisp them a bit, and Maison du Pain's are interesting--with a bit of sweetness to the outer layer...but nothing like Fauchon. Any ideas?
Le Pain du Jour, 828 Pico Blvd., Suite 2, Santa Monica, (310) 399-4870. Call for hours and go early.
The best European style pastries we have eaten
are from Love Birds Cafe & Bakery in Pasadena.
All of the croissants are lovely. Of course
homemade is the best but Love Birds saves
all the work.
All of their pastries are "almost" as good
as we have had in Europe. And the prices
are ridiculously cheap so you can try many.
Here is link:
I have not been to their Alhambra or Monterey Park locations.
I think Europane is overrated and expensive.
FYI, the Costco croissants are really good too
