Croissant d'Or Patisserie
Croissant d'Or Patisserie Review
In a quiet corner of the French Quarter, you'll have to look for the quaint Croissant d'Or Patisserie. Once you've found it, you'll understand why locals and visitors return to the colorful pastry shop for excellent and authentic French croissants, pies, tarts, and custards, as well as an imaginative selection of soups, salads, and sandwiches. You can get your goodies to go, but try to get a table during the busy breakfast hours for great people-watching. During Carnival season, they bake a traditional French-style king cake filled with almond paste. The cafe is open 6:30 am to 3 pm.
