Where to Eat Croissant on for National Croissant Day (or any day) in Dallas



National Croissant Day (which is a bit silly since croissants originated in Austria and then were perfected in France and have nothing to do with us here in the U.S.) is tomorrow, January 30. Whether you're celebrating the food holiday tomorrow or any day from here on out, here are eight highly recommended spots to score those laminated lovelies:

Bisous Bisous Patisserie

This French Bakery in the West Village offers the quintessential French pastry in classic, chocolate, pistachio and seasonal flavors, plus unique "cruffins" which are the cross between a croissant and a muffin you never knew you needed. The treats are available in a frozen take-and-bake format that will wish you never knew about it.

Village Baking Co.

With locations on Greenville Avenue and also now on Travis Street in Uptown, Village Baking Co. Boulangerie offers up "a taste of France in Dallas." Every day, several varieties of croissants are available, including a specialty pretzel version that's particularly killer.


La Tarte Tropézienne

The first U.S. shop under the La Tarte Tropézienne name to open up did so in downtown Dallas amidst the coronavirus pandemic. No worries, though, because incredible French croissants topped with luscious pastry cream make for excellent treats for sheltering in place... in stretchy pants.

Edith's French Bistro

Head to Edith's if you're near Plano, Allen or Richardson and get a craving for a real French experience. Not limited to baked goods, Edith's features everything from charcuterie boards to oysters to custom cakes, with French pastries available daily.


La Casita Bakeshop

Richardson's own La Casita is a newer addition to the bakery scene in DFW but oh man are they good. Some of the most creative croissants to come out of La Casita are their seasonal Thanksgiving croissants, filled with turkey, green beans, stuffing and cranberry sauce! That said, one can never go wrong with a classic chocolate or almond croissant at La Casita. Get those preorders in starting every Wednesday at noon and be aware the storefront is only open Saturdays between 10:00 and 3:00 p.m.

Haute Sweets Patisserie

The East Dallas gem that's well known for macarons and beignets offers their special croissants only on Fridays and Saturdays. Choose from Almond, Chocolate Almond, Chocolate or Plain and don't forget to order online for in-store or curbside pickup or local delivery.

Leila Bakery

Tucked into a little corner in East Dallas, with a new second location opening up in Plano's Legacy Hall, Leila bakes up buttery, flaky goodness every day and serves croissants alongside coffee, quiche, breads, pies, cakes, cookies, muffins, scones and more.


Otto's Coffee and Fine Foods

Baked up by an in-house pastry team, the croissants at Otto's coffee shop inside The Adolphus Hotel in downtown Dallas are always drool-worthy.
