Non-Cronut Line at Dominique Ansel?

Oliverstreet Aug 13, 2013 04:47 PM

I'd like to pick up some DKAs tomorrow morning, but am scared of the lines these days at Dominque Ansel. Do they have a separate line for non-cronut seekers?

    I confirm, just go straight in, I do it every weekend and I always ask to the people in line outside the door so they know I'm not going in to steal their cronut..

      its not bad at all, i was there maybe a 10-12 person line that went very fast

      DKA is good albeit a bit heavy, almond croissant is good (croissant itself is quite good, paste is a bit too sweet though)

        I thought the same thing, I think their paste is too sweet and the croissant itself was a bit greasier than I like. I prefer the almond croissant at Cannelle's.

            Yes, that's the place, Cannelle is really a gem.

                I would recommend to try the almond croissant and especially the chocolate almond croissant at Francois Payard Bakery.. I think they're both better then the Dominique Ansel one..

        Y'know, if you go, I think you should consider the hot chocolate. Totally underrated, but awfully good.

          Yes, there is a separate line.

          "@pookie77 Hi there - yes, there is a separate line you can walk right in. Or come after 10:00am and things should be calmer."
