Le Croissant Dore

9122 Bolsa Ave. Westminster, CA 92683 | Westminster | 714-895-3070

Location Description:

Le Croissant Dore is a French bakery in Little Saigon that also sells Vietnamese food. It’s a well-lit place with a lot of display cases to showcase its great desserts, pastries, and a couple of their foodstuffs. They’re most famous, though, for their fruit tarts. Set on a crumbly crust, these fruit tarts are flaky, layered with a cool, eggy custard you could eat on its own if you had the chance, but is actually the base on which the fresh fruit are arranged. A final shellacking of shiny goo makes the strawberries, kiwis, pineapple, oranges, and grapes glisten like mirrors. And no matter what time of the year you decide to pick one up, the pastry will always look the same. No it's not seasonal, but it is dependable, and cheap to boot. At any other patisserie, expect to be gouged for more than what they charge here: a mere $24 for a tart that yields eight healthy servings.
