Who knows croissants better than the French?
There’s a reason you’ve been eating a lot of croissants lately. Sure, they’re hard to resist. But also, they’re around. Everywhere, really — because Philly has a new generation of bakers taking the craft very seriously. And they’re all really, really good.
But this is Best of Philly, so we set out to find the crème de la crème. (We know; our jobs are hard.) To do this, Philly Mag’s food team identified the best plain croissants being produced by this new cadre of bakeries: the offerings from J’aime French Bakery in Midtown Village, Hungry Pigeon in Queen Village, Machine Shop Boulangerie in East Passyunk, Kettle Black in NoLibs, and Delice et Chocolat in Ardmore.
