  • Holy cow, if you like savory pastries, the ham and cheese croissant is no joke.
  • Last weekend they sold out of everything by 9:40 am, I was told. They are SO worth waking up early. Do it.
  • Ham and cheese croissants are great. Be warned there is no espresso machine, so no lattes
  • The best damn almond croissant I've ever had. The other pastries are good too but all you need are the almond croissants. Prepare for a line.
  • Named Bon Appetit's "Best New Bakery in the US" for 2016, lines at the bakery are now over 2 hours. Call ahead to place an order for pick-up for the next day.
  • Best croissants in the city
  • Small French bakery with lovely croissants.
  • The croissants are amazing!
  • Best chocolate croissant of my life! The perfect combination of crisp & flaky on the outside and gooey deliciousness on the inside.
  • Everything is amazing. Chocolate croissants fresh out of the oven were so good that I felt self conscious eating them around other people. I had a sample of a scone that was the best of my life.
  • Their Kouign Amann is so nice and flaky - one of the best that I've gotten! But Plain Croissant and Chocolate Croissant are not as impressive. Also, the staffs there are pretty rude...
  • Best pain au chocolat in the city. Also, chocolate croissant doesnt mean anything.
  • Best kouign amann Ive had in the city. The chocolate croissant is incredible. Absolutely worth the wait.
  • The Chocolate Almond Croissant is very sweet and overpowering (not recommended)
  • The plain croissant is so perfect to me. I have yet to try the other variations. I also like the kouign amann!
  • croissant, croissant with ham and cheese, and chocolate croissant (it has melty chocolate inside). the buttery flakiness is out of this world!
  • Both the Ham & Cheese and the Chocolate & Almond croissant were incredible!
  • Best croissants in sf
  • Best croissant in SF
  • The almond croissants are out of this world! Id recommend a cup of coffee or tea to go with it since they are quite decadent.
