The perfect croissant is soft and moist inside but flaky outside and quite frankly, next to impossible to find in Mumbai city. While everyone adores this Parisian breakfast treat, not everyone has mastered the art of a good croissant. They come in various shapes, overcooked at times, not brushed enough with egg wash and often have a very stingy portion of their fillings. Thankfully there is a handful that gets it right and we've picked them in case you urgently need a quick croissant fix!
The restaurant is a popular spot for lunch and dinner but many forget that they have an excellent selection for breakfast. While their small bakery has sweet treats, baked bread and Buttery Croissants the best way to enjoy it is by opting for the breakfast sandwich. It's a flaky croissant filled with air-dried meats and cheese. Super fuel to kick-start your mornings.

This restaurant is one of the few that just gets everything right. All their bread are baked in-house and their croissants are warm and perfectly flaky. You might not find it easily on the menu except if you order their bread basket but make sure to ask your server, there's always a fresh batch being baked.

Before all the trendy cafes and bistros, this Belgian cafe chain was the only place in town where folks would line up early morning just to get their hands on those freshly made croissants. Even today with four outlets across the city, Le Pain Quotidien is considered one of the very best spots to get a warm flaky buttery croissant. While the Pure Butter Croissant is the top seller, their Belgian Chocolate Croissant also has many takers.

It would be sacrilege for this French cafe to get a classic croissant wrong and thankfully the plump parcels at Suzette are delicious. They are freshly made for breakfast which means 12 pm they're almost always sold out but this buttery treat is best accompanied by a steaming cup of coffee to help you kick off the morning.
La Folie Lab
Not only does this cafe and patisserie make excellent croissants in their basic form, they have the most incredible Stuffed Croissant Sandwiches. Breakfast at La Folie Lab is a treat but that avocado and poached egg stuffed croissant are just delectable. If you want to skip the egg the Caprese Croissant which has tomato, basil and bocconcini are just as wholesome not to mention delicious.
