Best croissant in the country? I know that’s a bold statement, but this bakery in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood is so confident in the high quality of their croissants that their website claims they should be a serious contender for the honors. Only open from Wednesday through Saturday, you will see long lines of locals wait for the chance to buy their breads and pastries, some still steaming from being just pulled out of the oven, which they attack with the same type of verve and flair that you can find at a top-notch Parisian boulangerie.
