Flaky, buttery, croissant

I am in search of a great croissant in Boston/ Newton. I am from New York, and love the ones at Patisserie Claude in Greenwich Village, (if anyone is familiiar with that gem).
If you can recommend a place to get a wonderful, flaky, buttery, lick-your-fingers-to pick-up the flakes, croissant, I'd love to hear about it!!

  1. I like the croissant at the Thinking Cup, either the Beacon St. location or the North End place. If you like cappuccinos, give theirs a try.

      Love Thinking Cup. Ms 9 had a croissant today. BTW, on Tremont not Beacon..opening a 3rd spot on Newbury in the near future.

      I also like Bread and Butter on Cross St, North End.

        Oops, of course, Tremont! Thanks for the correction. Great to hear about Newbury.

        I was pretty tempted by Bread and Butter last week, but went for the tried-and-true Thinking Cup around the block. I'll get there soon.

          Just when my office moves off Newbury they get Shake Shack and croissants!


          Better for my waistline I guess ....

      2. I love the croissant at Clear Flour Bread Bakery in Brookline (Coolidge Corner area)

              Fourth. Especially the Gruyere cheese ones.

        1. Have you tried Flour? I think it's quite good. My go to is La Provence in Concord, MA but that might be too far from you.
