On a quick two day road trip to Jerome, AZ! We stopped in Yuma for a quick bite. I dearly adore these tasty ham & cheese croissant sandwich things at Starbucks.

Hotel Atwater

Excellent ham & cheese croissant thing at Hotel Atwater on Catalina Island!

Red House Cafe

Lady FoodObs had a recent road trip to NorCal and had this stunning eggs Benedict at Red House Cafe in Pacific Grove! I immediately noticed there was a croissant in lieu of an English muffin. Such a great looking dish that I would have loved to try.

Catalina Coffee & Cookie Co.

Outstanding ham & cheese croissant sandwich at Catalina Coffee & Cookie Co.! These were so good, I had two during our short visit to Catalina Island!

Jack in the Box 

The so-called brunch Burger at Jack in the Box was pretty tasty!  


Outstanding chocolate croissant at Starbucks!  Best eaten warmed up.  Grab extra napkins! 

Catalina Island Brew House 

Outstanding chocolate croissant at Catalina Island Brew House!  This place is great!  They specialize in coffee in the morning and beer in the evening.  The perfect “brew” house in my opinion. 

Jack in the Box 

These croissant breakfast sammich things at Jack in the Box are pretty tasty…

KD’s Donuts 

KD’s Donuts for breakfast! Tried one of their “Filled Croissants” for only $1.75. They have cream cheese; cream cheese with random fruit fillings; or ham & cheese ($3.25).  These croissants are huge! Roughly the size of a deflated football, or maybe a calzone someone sat on. You can elect to have it warmed (microwaved), which I opted for. The croissant itself seemed fresh and somewhat flaky. Nothing really remarkable about it. Eating the first half it seemed as if there was no cream cheese filling! It wasn’t until about half way through that I began to discern a slight cream cheese flavor and creamy sensation in my mouth. It’s possible that whatever cream cheese was present within just wound up weeping into the bottom dough layer during the heating process. It was a decent enough breakfast for me at a good price, just be advised that the term “filled” might be a misnomer. 

Dunkin Donuts

Tried the new “Maple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich” at Dunkin Donuts last weekend. Made with egg, sausage patty, some sort of white cheese (not sure what it was), all on a croissant. $3.49, sandwich only.  Much better than the terrible chicken biscuit I had there back in the day. Although I will say the best part of this sandwich was the warm, toasty croissant. The egg was fairly institutional tasting; cheese had no discernible flavor; sausage had a nice, somewhat sweet maple-y flavor.  

I’m going back soon to try their new “Lemon Croissant Donut” – looked really good!
