The city is still in the midst of Cronut Fever, that whirlwind craze surrounding Dominique Ansel Bakery’s donut-croissant hybrid. But if you don’t feel like trekking to Manhattan and waiting in line for two hours, we’ve got some good news: our very own Trois Pommes Patisserie is baking its own version of the treat!
The 5th Avenue bakery introduced their Croissant Donuts earlier this month, as discovered by the Daily Meal. At $4 each, the layered donuts– which the Daily Meal calls “quite good, crisp, flaky, light and not dense”– are piped with either chocolate or vanilla crème.
And word seems to be spreading. The specialty donuts were originally planned as a weekend-only treat, but Trois Pommes has extended their availability in response to overwhelming interest. And while you may not need to get in line at 5 am (yet), it seems you do have to get there at least before 11am– we found the donuts sold out two mornings in a row.
Have you guys tried the famous cronut or its Park Slope cousin? Is it worth the hype?
