Just when I called off my search for the best almond croissants in the area (conclusion, there isn't one) I read that Crema has a very good one. Looking for confirmation or testimonials from anyone who's had one or any recommendation for your favorite. My hands down favorite almond goodie is the twice baked brioche from Flour. Had a stellar slice this week, thickly sliced and schmered with a very generous layer of frangipane which is the real star. All the croissants I've tried which call themselves almond are sorely lacking in the almondy spread and seem to only get their classification as almond from a smattering of nuts on top. Not good enough for me.
