2021 Best Croissants

La Saison Bakery

Originally established by baker Soheil Fathi in his native Tehran, La Saison was resettled in Cambridge in 2020. How lucky we were to receive its delightfully delicate pull-apart croissants, which are light and airy but butter-rich, too. Fathi’s deft dough-making skills also apply to his majestic kouign-amann, a round relative to the croissant that features flaky, decadent folds of caramelized vanilla sugar.
