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!

Duchess Bake Shop

) Located in the western part of Oliver Square, Breadland has a variety of savoury croissants to choose from. For something different, try the spinach pesto croissant.

L'Espresso Organic Cafe'

3 Sir Winston Churchill Sq NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 2C3

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? Try the amaretto almond or toasted almond coffee with an almond croissant. But, if you’re opting for a plain croissant, let its buttery richness speak for itself and pair it with their java jazz blend.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
