French, Bakeries: Brothers Francois and Phillipe Cahagne opened Croissant Gourmet in 2008 and in the time since it has become a local favorite in the walkable window shopper's paradise of Winter Park. While lunch time brings in all manner of diners clamoring for specialties like quiche Lorraine and croque monsieur, Croissant Gourmet's bakery is a universal draw, whether you're sitting down to enjoy one of their massive buttery namesakes with a cup of coffee or stopping in for a box of baked goodies to go. Favorites here include rich vanilla- or chocolate-filled eclairs, all manner of tarts (from apple Normandy to apricot), coconut and vanilla flans, classic Napoleons, an array of delicious and photogenic macarons and of course, the stars of the show: croissants. Stay away if you're on a diet.
Local Expert A.D. Thompson Says:
Best for French Because: Need neat eating? You may want to look elsewhere. The buttery flakes of the namesake pastry here will surely end up in your lap. NOM!
Best for Bakeries Because: Eclairs. Macarons. And yes, croissants (sometimes with gravy!) are just the tip of the French iceberg at this Winter Park favorite.
