A very late Cronut guide

Twelve dollars? I knew we should have gone to the bakery. I guarantee you they’re not getting no twelve dollar cake
George Costanza (Seinfeld episode “The Dinner Party”)

Cronut, crodough, crodoughnut, dosant or whatever you want to call it is one of the most addictive sweet treats created so far. We are in love with them, not only because they came from NY but also they are pretty damn tasty. Simple concept, a pastry mix between a croissant and a doughnut invented and trademarked by Dominic Ansel.

There are different bakeries and restaurants where you can find them in London, but this ones below are the ones I have tried so far.

Nice coffee/tea shop with posh clientele in Sloane Square. One of the best I have had so far, but pricy, I guess you're paying for quality and convenience. Different flavours usually changed daily.

The posh one

I would have never guessed that the tea emporium F&M had them in their confectionary and chocolate section. Usually two options mini cronuts or regular cronuts, we got the smaller ones, and of course one of each of the four flavours they had. Lemon and chocolate the best ones of the four, pretty decent ones, mid price range, they didn't want to tell us who was their supplier but they confirmed they don't bake them there.

Nice cronuts you can find them in different farmer markets around London, not an expensive option and probably the easier to find, as Astons is present in several markets across London during the weekend. Sadly their filled Crodos went into retirement "for now", but you can still find the Cinnamon sugar crodo which is quite nice. Just check their twitter or facebook accounts to know their whereabouts.

The Market ones
Rinkoff Bakery 

The last one I tried, they have been highly recommended, and I'm glad I left them for last. Definitely the best ones in town. The fourth generation family bakery that opened in 1911 brings 6 outstanding creations, I got one then ordered the other 5, they are amazing.
