Why locals love it

Amazing traditional French pastries, occasionally with an awesome modern twist. Crispy buttery croissants and tasty classics are here year-round, with seasonal macarons (like Mojito, Thai Iced Tea, and blackberry), danishes (like apricot/goat cheese and fig/black olive) and others (like a rummy eggnong croissang) rotating in.

Why you should visit it

An ever-changing roster of French Macarons. The best croissants in the city. They're actually crunchy! Which I don't see too often. The Kouign Amann. Laminated pastry dough in a buttery, sugary shell. The Caneles, which they only make on the weekend. Dark, crunchy, bittersweet exterior around a custardy interior.

Special tip

Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, which makes the start of the week that much more difficult.

Neil Robertson, the fine-dining pastry chef (Canlis, Mistral Kitchen) who owns Crumble & Flake, said he was stunned when named a James Beard semi-finalist in 2014 Anyone who has tasted his pastries is understand why! Robertson's ability to combine traditional technique with innovative flavors is phenomenal. It's AMAZING how much buttery flavor can go into these life changing pastries.
