Crazy for Cronuts!

Who wants to go on a road trip? I'm DYING to try the very famous "Cronut" from Dominique Ansel Bakery in Soho. Voted Best Bakery 2012 and Best New Bakery 2012, Dominique Ansel Bakery launched the Cronut in May of this year. Half croissant, half doughnut, this tasty treat can only be scored one of three ways. Visit the bakery where lines start up to two hours before opening {8am Mon-Sat, 9am Sun} and shoppers are limited to two Cronuts per guest...I love these rules from their website

"As a rule of thumb, if you arrive prior to 6:45am on a week day, you have a great chance of getting a Cronut. Please note there is a 2 person limit for in-store purchases. When in line, please do be considerate of the residences in the neighborhood and the others in line. Do not cut or reserve spots for friends and we hope you don’t endorse any scalpers you may see. Please do try to keep the sidewalk clear of obstruction so there is ample room for passerbys and keep your voice level to a minimum."

Any food that involved scalpers is something I have to try! You can also call Mondays at 11am when the pre-order list opens for up to two weeks in advance, lists are currently full until mid-August and the limit is 6 Cronuts per order. Lastly if you want 50 or more you can find notes on their website for how to place an order, however the soonest pickup is currently September. All Cronuts must be picked up, shipping is not possible due to their short shelf life, and eaten immediately.

  1. I am super intrigued by this hybrid dessert. I really wish I lived closer to this shop. Until then I will have to scan the internet for recipe knockoffs.
