Love Croissants, a small counter bakery inside of Weights + Measure in Midtown, puts the percentage and name of the fancy butter in the croissants right on the menu—82% beurremont beurre—so you know it’s serious. Try the buttery, airy, and deeply satisfying pain au chocolats, croissants stuffed with extra thick layers of smoked ham and asiago, and something called a “crolache,” a uniquely Texas mashup that combines a croissant and toasted jalapeño cheddar beef sausage kolache. And who needs cronuts when Love makes cruffins? Just make sure to go there early or order ahead online to avoid losing out to other laminated dough fanatics.
