Paris Bakery [Seaside and Monterey]

Last week, after finding Sweet Elena’s closed for vacation, I stopped by the Seaside location of Paris Bakery. Mostly a wholesale location, this was my first time to either site. Paris Bakery was voted best bakery of 2013 in the Monterey County Weekly’s readers poll.

The almond croissants looked good in the case --- stuffed to overflowing with almond paste, topped with sliced almonds and dusted with powdered sugar. However, while these were twice-baked, the croissant part still seemed underdone, too wet, and doughy. Also the butter was low grade.

On the top of the counter, the last galettes des rois (king cake) until Epiphany next year. While I didn’t try this, they’re not easy to find so wanted to file it in the chowhound archives.

What's good here?
