If you’ve fantasized about it too, you’ve probably explored a few French words–especially the food–and croissants are definitely on top of the list! So you know how to pronounce “croissant”, but do you know the best places to try them in the Metro?

Do you know what I mean? Like, ordering croissants and coffee for a quick fix, even just to-go on days when you have a lot on your plate…because once you taste that buttery and crisp crescent treat, you just know that life’s still great after all! So without further ado, here’s a list of must-try croissants to help satisfy your “Emily in Paris” lifestyle dreams.
