Fabulous Frissants

This artisanal bakery makes good bread, pretzels, pastries, cakes and the rest but its main claim to fame is the specialty 'frissants' it proudly produces.

Frissants are deep-fried croissants, cousins of the famous 'cronuts' invented not so long ago in New York. Many claim that this Vancouver variant is an improvement on the original: it certainly garners great reviews, and Canadians love the doughnut at least as passionately as their southern neighbors.

New flavors are always being added to the list, but it's the amazingly indulgent texture of the squashy crunchy layers that's the real draw. If you're in Vancouver you need to throw caution to the winds and go for it.
