The perfectly buttery and flaky croissant is hard to find, unless you're in Paris, of course. However, Croissant Brioche in West University makes you feel as if you just stepped inside a little Parisian cafe. While you can't go wrong with a plain croissant, the almond is where it's at; it's a specialty at Croissant Brioche. Thin slices of toasted almonds sit atop a subtly sweet layer of almond paste, but the best surprise is the creamy almond paste filling between the thin croissant layers. If you have a hankering for something savory, order the ham and cheese or the beef sausage croissant — either is perfect for breakfast or lunch.
