Where to taste the original Cronut – Dominique Ansel Bakery
Do you ever arrive back home from a trip and discover that you’ve missed some of the must-do activities that your friends are asking you about? That sinking feeling is FOMO: the Fear of Missing Out. Ever heard of a Cronut? They’re hard to get your hands on but Neil Simpson finds out how…
Do you like the sound of a croissant-doughnut hybrid? You’re not the only one: when chef Dominique Ansel began selling his Cronut creation in 2013, it was a New York City sensation and led to queues that would make you weep.
Ansel’s London bakery followed in 2016. I had never eaten an official Dominique Ansel Cronut before, because a limited number is baked in London every day and you need to arrive at opening time (Mon-Sat 8am; Sun 9am) to have the best chance of buying one. But with 48 hours’ notice, you can order Cronuts online and collect them. I picked a time, arrived at the bakery and finally ate a dreamy Cronut.
Head down to their bakery in Belgravia and keep your eyes peeled for a new branch opening in Covent Garden, spring 2019.
