You’re here for one thing: croissants. Try to get to the tiny storefront early before the almond croissants sell out, otherwise you’ll be forced to settle for just a perfect regular croissant. Arsicault has a few tables outside and some seats on a small upper level area, but honestly, seating isn’t so key since you’ll likely be eating your pastries out of a bag on the street. Besides the croissants, the kouign amann and chocolate chip cookies are some of the best around. Your best bet is to hit this place up at non-peak hours or just after they open (7am weekdays, 8am weekends) to beat the line.

Food for the Lululemon crowd, and for us too. Jane on Fillmore finely toes the line between healthy and delicious. If only they were open for dinner.
