Almost Paris

January 2, 2018

One quickly gets used to a croissant breakfast in Paris, but it is a little more difficult here as they are not on every corner…yet. (One can always hope for a better world!) We did find a remarkably good almond croissant at PCC Community Market in Columbia City.


The store itself is a pleasure: red and white pots of cyclamen greeted us at the entrance and this store is spacious, unlike its predecessor in Seward Park where a line would back up behind the indecisive customer perusing the bagel selection. PCC has bakery items from Macrina and Rae’s in West Seattle, but the croissants are just in a bin of random baked goods, which appear to be PCC made. This Croissant is good-sized, light and has an intense almond flavor. It isn’t in the same league as the double-baked croissants at Bakery Nouveau, but then again its price is more modest: $2.39. Enjoy!
