If you are one of those who indulge themselves, those who like to commemorate historical events or have directly decided that life is two days, facing World Croissant Day, what better than propose a culinary journey for the best places in Spain to enjoy this sweet temptation. Since Yescapa, the leading platform for motorhome and camper van rental in Europe, collects the best route to find from butter puff pastry, stuffed, unfilled, toasted or with jam … on board a motorhome.
–Croissanteria Paris (Salamanca): Few university students from Salamanca are those who have not visited this pastry shop located on Calle Mayor and considered the best in Salamanca on tripadvisor. Specializing in French pastries, the secret of its croissants lies in the selection of its stone-ground flours, the butter brought from Brittany and the 24-hour fermentation of its doughs at different temperatures. If you want to enjoy them they serve them alone, but also filled with both sweet and savory.
–Pomme sucre (Gijón): Asturias is one of the autonomous communities where you can eat the best in all of Spain, but not everything there is cachopos and fabadas, they also have great pastry chefs and in Gijón (on Libertad Street) we can also find one of the best pastry shops in our geography where you can taste a traditional puff pastry and delicious butter croissant. A must for breakfast or snack if we visit Gijón.
–Le petit Croissant (Zaragoza): Le Petit Croissant was born on October 2, 2006 on Calle Hernán Cortés in Zaragoza, through the efforts of Anne-Laure Romeuf, who wanted to bring a little flavor from Paris to Zaragoza and it is clear that she has succeeded. They currently have 3 different places where you can taste what for many are the best croissants in Spain. Made with flours brought directly from the best French mills, these sins are well worth a visit to the city of Pilar.
-: For croissant (and chocolate) lovers, on Calle Alcalá in Madrid we can find this pastry shop owned by “passionate about classic doughs” to which they bring their “personal touch”. Here we can enjoy some fantastic croissants, but what you should not miss is its “homage to the horn of the 80s”, a stuffed and chocolate covered croissant that is well worth a long walk around Madrid to offset those extra calories.
–Swiss pastry shop (Bilbao): A Bilbao classic (Calle Marqués del Puerto) where they continue to make irresistible croissants. The more than 60 years that this pastry shop has been in the same location should give you an idea of how outstanding its pastry is, but if you don’t believe us, you just have to check it out. We propose you a great weekend plan, visit the Guggenheim museum and a ten-minute walk through the center to have a good coffee with croissant.
–La creme de la creme (Seville): In the south they have art even for French pastries and one of the best tests is found in the Plaza Regina in Seville where, in addition to its internationally recognized croissants, we can also enjoy some of the most famous recipes of French cuisine.
-: We already know that Cádiz is one of the best places in Spain to live, but it was also discovered years ago by the French Hervé Hasson who years ago decided to settle in Jerez and surprise us with his creations. At its place in Plaza las Angustias you can enjoy one of the most recognized French croissants in Spain. Passion, tradition and of course the best Norman butter make it a “must try” for lovers of this delicacy.
