Croissant D'Or - Was wonderful, now only good.

Birthday week in the household always brought a Tarte Maison from Croissant D'Or. When Maurice was in control they were without parallel. He left, and they shrank, declined in quality, and increased in price. Now ownership has changed again, and a tarte maison is $29 and the size of a personal pizza (initially a large!). The quality and range of other offerings has declined in proportion. Whoever owns this now is milking the profits on the tourist trade, and cares little for the art. Still OK, though, and pricy.
