2023 Best Loaded Croissant

Lakon Paris Patisserie

If you spend time in the food-loving corners of social media, you’ve surely seen Lakon’s epic weekend croissant specials: layers and layers of buttery dough, shaped like a traditional croissant or even in cube and ring forms, stuffed with jellies and creams, drizzled with glazes, and topped with garnishes like little chocolate balls or freeze-dried fruit slices. The debut of a new location in 2023 only made the lines longer and the hype louder. But it’s well worth the wait on a weekend morning for these beauties.
