Upon hearing that I need to wake up at 6.30am on a Sunday morning and wait in line for at least 30 minutes before getting my hands on anything, I was very reluctant to even get out of bed. Gave in to temptation, afterall, I do love a good piece of baked croissant in the morning and surely it is something worth raving about if people are willing to queue for it, no?
Arrived here at 7.20am and despite the light drizzle, there must have been at least 10 people already waiting in line. Fearing that I may lose my number in the line, I held on to my ticket and OCD-ly look at it. When the names started to roll out, my heart skipped a beat as I surely do not want to miss my place in the queue just because I dozed off in the corner of the street!
These baked goodies are not exactly pocket friendly but I wouldn't a good treat every now and then. They are possibly one of the best croissants I have tasted in Melbourne so far and so, I would highly recommend coming here if you love croissants as much as I do.
On that particular week, the twice baked croissant came in three different flavours: almond croissant, pandan croissant and sticky date pudding croissant. The pandan croissant had a good kick of pandan cream that had been thinly spread on the halved croissant before it enters the oven.
Overall, one must head here at least once when in Melbourne. I have not tried real French croissants before and can only imagine what it will be like if I do step into that land.
Ps, this place only opens on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
