Good croissants are nearly impossible to find. Most places around Hartford start with mediocre croissants and then will sell them way past their expiration date (which is about a half-day). Best I have come across are at the First and Last Bakery on Maple Avenue in Hartford. The last really good croissant was sold at La Gourmandise bakery in West Hartford but that place went out of business five-10 (?) years ago.
