The chocolate almond croissant at this French bakery in Bushwick makes a compelling argument for becoming a morning person. Topped with a big dollop of almond meringue, the crisp outer layer crackles as you bite it, revealing a doughy inside with a thin streak of almond paste and chocolate. It’s baked just long enough for the ends to caramelize, and leaves a buttery sheen on your fingers. If you want one (you do), get there as early as possible. Especially because, by the time the bakery closes at 7pm, those croissants don’t have the same can-do attitude as they did in the AM, and end up a little dry. There’s not much room to hang out inside the bakery, but L'imprimerie does have a couple of cafe tables outside if you need one. You’re better off grabbing a pastry and a latte made with Parlor Coffee on the way to the Myrtle-Wyckoff L train.
