Where are great cronuts in L.A.

    1. They have them at Barney Greenglass. I had to ask what it was, and they explained it was all the rage. It was pretty good if you happen to be dining there.

      1. Frances Bakery has them in the Honda Plaza in Little Tokyo

            I got a chocolate glazed eclair style one and while the cronut itself was gorgeous (that crust looked so beautifully browned and flaky) a combination of the heaviness in oil plus the lack of sweetness from the custard to cut through the oiliness of the layers made for a rather bland and greasy experience for me. I imagine with a sweeter custard and less heavy handed-ness in the oil I can actually get behind cronuts. The chocolate frosting was on point though (but not sweet enough to lift everything else).

            Haven't had anything else but those from Frances, but they're pretty awesome. Rec the blueberry!

              DK's cronut things were terrible.

                I like DKs cronuts. They're probably a little more donut-y than croissant-y.

              2. The Whole Foods Market in Tustin has a maple bacon crossoint-donut thingy. I just had to try it (for the sake of science), and it started out being quite tasty, but I should have stopped halfway. Half would be fine, but a whole one was too much for me, I felt kind of guilty-sick afterwards....
