9.45 am, -5C, 12 people waiting outside a store. Breadlines in Novosibirsk, 1982?
Nope. Proud Edmontonians supporting one of their own. Every Food Blogger in Edmonton worth their sugar, has covered this pastry and bake shop, so let me not make you envious with how buttery the Croissant was and how the Pain au Chocolat is maybe better than any in Calgary.

Believe it or not, they all made it back to Calgary, we did not eat any on the road. (Though I ate both Pains au Chocolat & one Croissant...)
Having just had the first one (3), let me tell you something, Edmonton Celiacs.
Go swarm that place like there is no tomorrow. They are excellent and quite frankly a good deal. You can taste the top quality ingredients.
