Your mouth begins to water when you're just standing at the door peering in through the glass windows. Kouign-amanns (pronounced queen-ah-mon) are amazing especially when you know how much work goes into them. These buttery flaky little babies have sugar encased in the middle of them and must be taken out of the pan when they are hot. My understanding is that the bakers have burns on their arms trying to remove these little bundles of goodness straight out of the hot pans. So when I bit into mine, I knew the sacrifices that these bakers make and it tasted just that more special.
I also ordered the chocolate banana croissant and didn't eat it until the next day when I was flying back home and it was just as tasty the next day.
Just letting you know that you will pay for your decadent visit in calories and moula. Anything with butter and love will cost you. 3 Kouign-amanns and 1 banana chocolate croissant cost me $20. Definitely worth the splurge or a special treat. Like for every 5 pounds I lose I can have one visit here!
