Best croissants in London 

Who isn't obsessed with the humble French croissant. Humble no more. Thanks to a world of flavours now available in London to those that know where to look.

There are a few things that make a perfect croissant: flaky, buttery pastry; a light, airy texture; and a golden brown exterior. And fortunately, London is home to some of the best bakeries in the world, so finding a good croissant is never difficult.

Chestnut Bakery

If you adore croissants as much as I do. You're gonna love new bakery on the block. Chestnut bakery in Victoria London. They have unique sweet and savoury croissants. Among other artisan pastries.

You can tell the quality of their pastries matter. The chestnut bakery even have a Stone baked oven. Which was visible and fired up last time I visited on a Wednesday morning.

I love their lemon meringue croissants. Huge, flaky croissants are filled with a zesty lemon curd.

Whilst the top of these croissants are smothered in a generous amount of marshmallow s'more. All finished off by a beautiful sprinkling of edible rose petals!

My absolute favourite hidden gem London location for amazing croissants is Japanese patisserie Wa cafe. Ask about their croissants. Which come in a variety of unique flavours. Such as green tea. Where a soft. Sticky matcha icing covers the croissants. Yummy!

Criss Cross Croissants 

Although I'm not a fan of a lot of the croissants at Criss Cross bakery. I can't deny that the croissant selection in this cafe is insane!

Maybe you'll find a flavour you love here. Like I did with the sweet and tangy yuzu sesame meringue croissant.


With locations all over London, Paul is always a solid choice when you're looking for a good croissant. The pastries are consistently delicious and always super fresh. 

Plus, they have a wide selection of other baked goods if you're looking for something sweet to go along with your coffee.


This Soho institution has been serving up French classics since 1927. So it's no surprise that their Croissants aux Amandes are some of the best in the city. 

They use high-quality ingredients and traditional methods to create their pastries, and it really shows in the final product. If you're lucky enough to snag one of these beauties before they sell out, be sure to savour every bite!

Supreme croissant

Croissant Rolls

Also known by their more popular name. The supreme croissant. Is a viral sensation. Delicious. Circular croissants are filled with butter cream. Available in a range of different flavours. 

First bought to London in 2022 by French pastry chef Philippe Conticini. I'm happy to report that they taste as good as they look!

How to make perfect croissants

To make a perfect croissant, you'll need:

1. puff pastry

2. eggs

3. milk

4. sugar

5. butter

6. flour

7. yeast

Start by making the dough for the croissants. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and yeast. Mix well and then add in the cold butter, eggs, and milk. 

Stir until everything is evenly combined and then turn out onto a floured surface. Knead for about 10 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (overnight is best).
