Santa Clara has a new artisanal bakery in town: Croissanté. The shop, which offers about 75 baked goods daily, opened May 31.
Among the baked goods offered are a selection of croissants like almond, chocolate and spiral croissants, as well as baguettes, ciabatta loaves, cakes, doughnuts and danishes. There are also specialty items, like the almond kouign-amann, meringue cloud croissant and yuzu Madeleines. The bakery is also planning to offer cube croissants, according to a press statement.
In addition, the bakery offers a daily brunch menu with items including croque monsieur and madame sandwiches, tartines, toasts, and chicken and waffles.
Items are made from scratch daily and with ingredients – including flour and butter – imported from France: Foricher T45 Label Rouge flour and Elle & Vire butter.
The bakery's name draws inspiration from "santé," the French word for health, according to a press statement.
Espresso-based coffee drinks, champagne, beer and wine are also available to drink.
The bakery is currently in its soft-opening phase and is open 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
