The first thing that will strike you about the croissant at Des Gâteaux et Du Pain is the number of hues of gold you never knew existed. The butter, perfectly folded into each of the twisted layers, subliminally paints this pastry, giving it a crispy, flaky exterior. With one bite, you’ll taste that it was baked to perfection, first experiencing the crispiness of the outside, then the perfectly buttery interior with a hint of sweetness. Amid the black walls of Claire Damon’s pastry shop, your pastry will speak for itself – and it’s screaming, “best croissant in Paris.” If you wake up from your dream-like state after your croissant, consider stocking up on French desserts and pastries from the display. Everything Chef Damon makes is golden.
