Best Plain Croissant - Sportello

rlh | Apr 28, 2009 07:03 AM

It's true - the best plain croissant I've ever had in the New England area came from Sportello in Fort Point (upstairs from Drink) this morning - it was light, buttery, tender, flaky, and flavorful - and definitely baked within very few hours of consumption. I used to head to Riviera in Lexington for a croissant fix like this, but this was better - really, all others pale in comparison.

This bakery operation deserves more attention and investigation (it opens at 7a on weekdays) - but it also needs at least a couple of savory item offerings - everything else there today was really sweet stuff ( but the cupcakes looked really interesting...that's a breakfast food, right?)
