Satisfy your croissant cravings

The croissant is a puff pastry served during breakfast with coffee or during the afternoon for tea time. Originating in Austria (inspired by the crescent moon-shaped kipfel), it was introduced by Viennese baker August Zhang in France and eventually became popular in the country and later all over the world. It’s a simple yet delicious, decadent pastry that’s loved by many Malaysians!

The modern croissant now comes in different shapes, colours, and flavours, alongside the classic one. You can find them almost everywhere – from bakeries, grocery stores, and convenience stores to restaurants and cafés. However, if you’re looking for recommendations, look no further! Here are the top croissants sold in KL and where to buy them!

Opened in 2014 at Bukit Tunku, what started as a small bakery eventually evolved into a cafe to serve gourmet food.

Aside from being served as a sweet pastry, the croissant is a versatile-baked good that can also be topped with meat, vegetables, and special sauces.

Huckleberry’s Food and Fare serves both, and we recommend the Croque Madame that’s essentially made with ham, cheese, egg, and bechamel sauce with salad on the side.
