3 Petits Croissants

You’d be hard-pressed to find a bakery these days that didn’t run with some variation of “French artisanal”, but few have the casual, earnest vibe and more importantly, very wallet-friendly menu that 3 Petits Croissants offers – all without compromising on quality. Co-owner Franck Artis is adamant about keeping prices low because “bread should be for the community”, and he’s made good on his word: the excellent, generous-sized croissants start from $1.80, and the popular Matcha Azuki Croissant, a green-tea pastry with azuki bean paste, is just $3.50. And yes, these are all made with unbleached, preservative-free and GMO-free flour, using only traditional French recipes and methods.
