Hello All,

It has been a while since croissants were discussed so I thought I would make a post! Who makes the best croissants in Vancouver -plain or stuffed!

Here are a few options:
-Thomas Haas
-Beaucoup Bakery
-Faubourg
-Patisserie Bourdeaux
-Thierry
-Beyond Bread Artisan Bakery

Personally, I have found that Faubourg is tops!

    Beta5 make some sinfully delish ones - as well as pain au chocolat.

    Also Dunlevy snack bar has some tasty ones in a comfort kind of way.

      Mia Stainsby just investigated 14 options and liked best those from Thomas Haas Patisserie, Beaucoup Bakery, Bel Café and Ganache. You can read the full story here: http://blogs.vancouversun.com/2013/08...

        My ATF is Thoma Haas' double-baked almond croissant .... substantial, like a meal in itself. Then again I've only had others from Beaucoup and Faubourg.

          If your weakness is DBAC, LR, check out the ones at Matchstick. Whoa!

          Not a good idea to watch this first thing in the AM:

            On another note, apparently secret location makes cronuts -- but for some reason they only make 4 a day and sell out in 10 mins. I have never been able to get my hands on one.

            Anyone tried?
