Double Almond Croissant

Double Almond Croissant

Thomas Haas is not only creative and passionate at creating chocolates and pastries, he is world renown and knows how to romance us all. Many have waited quite awhile for him to open in Vancouver and now we can all savour his delicious pastries, desserts and chocolates. The patisserie is now the shining star of the block located next to Lumiere and the other fine eateries. The ambience is also enriching, with cute tables and a great display of chocolates of course all in fancy packaging that adorns the shelves around the shop. You can order an espresso beverage or the Thomas Haas special hot chocolate which he is known for along with one of the spectacular desserts. I patiently awaited while the almond croissants came out of the oven and enjoyed their Double Almond Croissant ($3.95) filled with almond and topped with almonds and icing sugar, this pastry was divine and worth the wait. If anyone knows chocolate it is Thomas and you will be in heaven at his gem in Kits.
