I have never been a fan of Ham and Cheese Croissants. I would take a sweet croissant or croissant with butter and jam any day. However, I was planning a vacation in Newport Beach, by ratings, and came across the Seaside Bakery. Everyone raved about the Ham and Cheese Croissants so I decided to have one.
The ham and cheese croissants are really the BEST!!!! I had to go again the next day and bought some to take some to our friends at home. They were too delicious to ignore on the long drive home and we ended up consuming all of them. Lucky for me that my daughter is now vacationing there and has strict orders to bring tons home for us. They are best heated on the spot, or taken home to microwave. They are a little buttery (ok, maybe a lot, which is why they are so delicious). I tried some up here where we live and they didn't compare at all.
This is really more of a donut shop/bakery type place with absolutely no seating. This isn't really a problem when the weather is nice because they are right across from the beach and you can just sit on the wall. Otherwise, you will need to rush to your car to eat....if you can wait that long. Oh, and most of the parking, if not all, is coin-operated and not cheap. It's probably really difficult to score any parking on the weekends.
