Croissants de France has opened a second location on Stock Island. On one had, this is amazing because I work on Stock Island and when I want a croissant I am only three minutes away. On the other hand, I am just three minutes away from a croissant six days a week. If my willpower is down that is going to create some havoc for me! But all in all I am thrilled to have this second location so nearby.
Unlike the main Croissants de France on Duval Street, this one does not have a full restaurant attached, so no eggs Benedict, pancakes, or salads are served here. However, they do have a nice selection of breads, quiches, pastries, cakes, and sandwiches. And of course several coffee drinks are also made to order.
Sadly, once I found out that the new location opened I visited three days in a row. On the first day I got a piece of the spinach and feta quiche to go. It was amazing; creamy and flakey all at once. On the second day, I got a spinach and feta croissant and an almond croissant. They were super fresh and delicious. On the third day I got a tuna sandwich. The tuna salad was tasty and wonderfully paired on a butter croissant. I also brought a tuna sandwich back to my husband and he complained that it was too small, but for me it was the perfect size.
Anyway, I am putting the brakes on my visits here for at least a few days! But I am looking forward to trying a Napoleon or a slice of key lime pie on my next visit!
Croissants de France’s Stock Island location can be found at 5620 McDonald Ave. (This is the same building that you can also find Roostica and the Dolphin Deli.) Their hours are 6:30am to 6:00pm, seven days a week.
