Des Croissants Paris is a traditional French bakery that smells like a tub of butter. Maybe that's not your first choice when picking out an air freshener, but inside a boulangerie, it's a good sign. You'll only find French staples at this minimalist Culver City cafe, like arms-length baguettes, glossy croissants that are buttery enough to glisten your fingers, and perhaps the best kouign-amann in LA. The layers of pastry peel apart like tissue paper, and the sugar crust shatters like candy but is still gooey inside. We got a C-minus in high school chemistry so we don’t know how that’s scientifically possible, but we can say this exquisite pastry alone is worth the visit.
