Croissants- South End Buttery

chezchristine | May 19, 2007 07:36 AM

Stopped in to try their crossaints and was assaulted by way too much butter (didn't know such a thing exsited!) and too much salt. It tasted like salted butter was used, and there were little beads of butter on the bottom. I prefer my crossaints to be flaky, made with sweet unsalted butter, and not so greasy that I still have a lingering taste of grease in my mouth. These weren't even close to my favorites when I lived in Paris.

To their credit, they did give me two instead of one in my order, as the server said that they were on the small side that day. I'm pretty sure they were fresh, as I stopped in around 9AM on a Friday morning.

Any other recommendations instead of crossaints there? I found their hot chocolate well made and most importantly, hot! The sandwiches sound interesting too.
