Last month, I ordered cronuts online and went to Soho early one morning to pick them up…the cronut craze is still going strong at Dominique Ansel Bakery and the line was kind of ridiculous when I got there on Friday:
Luckily, I didn’t have to wait in the long line because I ordered the cronuts online and just had to walk up to the door and get in a separate line to pick them up. The flavor of the month was ridiculously good (raspberry lychee for Valentine’s day) and they’re so nice that while you’re waiting, they bring out little madelines to nibble on.
