The Best Croissant I've EVER Had

Guys... I've discovered it. I've finally found it.

The Best Croissant Ever. 

My sister lives in San Francisco, so my parents and I decided to visit her for a week to escape the heat. It was 106 when we left and it's 57 in San Francisco right now. (Insert angels singing here)

Last year for Christmas, my sister got me the Tartine Bread cookbook. Although I haven't been brave enough to tackle any of the recipes yet, I'm planning to do it as soon as I get home.

They're famous for their sourdough, but it was the croissants that impressed me. They were the perfect marriage of buttery and flaky. I think I'm in love.

I ate it without anything on it... "Naked," if you will. 

The front is a double pain au chocolat, which has TWO delicious strips of dark cocoa chocolate. 

All of the pastries and delicious baked goods all lined up...

Bakers hard at work!

They start to sell assorted bread loaves at exactly 4:30 pm. We got there at 4:34 and the bread was so hot it almost burned my hands... the burns would have been worth it. The bread was fantastic.

Look at how yeasty it is! This is the Country loaf, and it tasted like a French sourdough. 

We may have overeaten a little... or is that even possible when it comes to croissants?

I say no.
