Croissants - a French favourite
Croissants are a well know food item from France. They are very popular in Australia as part of a continental breakfast or delicious to eat at any time. Buttery and flaky, with a crescent shape, croissants can be served sweet of savoury. They can be found in many local bakeries and patisseries, but where are Perth's best croissants?
The very popular Chez Jean-Claude Patisserie in Subiaco and Leederville sell a range of fresh tradition, chocolate, almond and savoury croissants.
Award Winning Jean Pierre Sancho Patisserie & Boulangerie has three great stores in Perth and Northbridge. Their range of cakes, pastries and breads are all made fresh daily and their croissants are especially good.
Have you tried La Galette de France, in either Nedlands and South Perth? These are fantastic French cafés and they make an assortment of tasty croissants including original, chocolate, almond and ham and cheese.
Choux in Swanbourne - BY FAR some of the best croissants in Perth (apart from Jean Pierre Sancho, which are super flaky and delicious). Choux was originally owned by Emmanuel Mollois, who now runs Bistro des Artistes in Subiaco with the ex-owner of the Loose Box, Alain Fabregues. Choux was then passed onto its head pastry maker, and he does as good a job as Emmanuel did, worth a try. Their macarons and cakes are to die for!
