Best Filled Croissants in the City

Some people are fans of the traditional plain buttery croissant and others such as me are fans of the filled croissants that go the extra mile. These are the ones that more and more people are yearning to eat for that special treat or with their morning coffee.  I have been tasting my way through the city’s best bakeries over the past while and here are some of my favourites, ones that are unique and divine!
