Crumble and Flake

Just curious to know if people have been to Crumble and Flake yet and if so, what are your favorite items? I didn't see any threads on this when I searched -- sorry if this is a duplicate.

I went last week and was able to try the chocolate croissant, the yuzu/raspberry macaron, chocolate, black pepper, and strawberry jam macaron, and the coconut cream puff. The macarons weren't all that spectacular to me, but were still good. I preferred the chocolate black pepper over the yuzu raspberry. I liked the chocolate croissant (but I like all chocolate croissants). The coconut cream puff was by far my favorite out of the items I snagged. There was some crusty sweet stuff baked onto the top of the cream puff and it wasn't too eggy, which is the part I usually don't like about pate a choux. The coconut cream filling was incredible -- rich and light at the same time, and sweet but not overly sweet.

I was disappointed that I didn't get there in time to get the elusive kouign amann. I'll have to wake up earlier next time. Has anyone been able to try it? Is there anywhere else in the Seattle area that makes the kouign amann?
