The best melt-in-your-mouth croissants in Edmonton

Buttery and flaky goodness, a croissant is possibly the best thing since ... sliced bread? Actually, the croissant’s ancestors date back well before sliced bread. Regardless, known as a “Viennoiserie” or a Vienna-style pastry, the croissant gets its name from its crescent shape, or croissant in French. So there you have it, ladies and gentlemen, the history of the best breakfast pastry has been served. Bon appétit!

L’Espresso Café is truly one-of-a-kind. Their coffee is made with hand-picked Calgary beans and offers a variety of flavours. Why not try to match flavours with your croissant?

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate.
