My Morning Getaway in Paris - Croissant From Chez François - Plaisirs de Provence


On a friend's very strong endorsement, I stopped in to Chez François - Plaisirs de Provence in Westboro at 427 Richmond Road to try one of those 'out-of-this-world-the-real-deal' croissants.

I have to agree, it was worth the trip.

The flaky buttery pâtisserie was neither greasy nor too dense.  It's tender interior gently held its pronounced layers. There was a distinct light sweetness that had me wondering if it actually came from the butter itself.

I hear these croissants are much sought after and felt lucky to still get one late morning.  It's freshness very much intact, I might add.

This treat will set you back $2.50. Recommended with a full-bodied coffee.


Perhaps next time the Pain au Chocolat. Research after all.....
