Le Petit Prince, a new French bakery in Astoria, turns out a beautiful croissant–buttery, flaky, and rich, with just the right density in the soft midbelly, reports Rufo. Apple tarts, pain au chocolat, and irresistible little mini-cakes–soft, nutty, and perfectly moist–have also caught hounds’ attention. Another encouraging sign: friendly service by an actual French person behind the counter. “It is a nice change from the Greek bakeries,” says kellyc96.
