Peach and cream cheese croissant – Specialty’s Cafe & Bakery

Peach and cream cheese croissant - Specialty's Cafe & Bakery
I was running late one morning and didn’t have time to eat breakfast at home so I had to grab a pastry before walking into my workplace. Specialty’s is right outside my Bart Station so it’s pretty convenient. They also sell discounted day old pastries which I don’t mind grabbing once in a while. This peach croissant was ok, and you could definitely tell it wasn’t freshly baked. Day old $1.49

Ok, this is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. Bouchon Bakery presses the shit out of their croissant sandwiches so you end up with a flat, condensed buttery mess! Isn’t the joy of eating a croissant the ability to appreciate the airy layers and flaky exterior? Well, they’ve decided that eating a hard puck of food is preferable. Fail!
