#1 - City Bakery Pretzel Croissant
A few years ago I walked in to a Birdbath Bakery, one of City Bakery's small outposts. I was contemplating an iced tea (best in the city) or a cookie when something caught my eye. It was a stack of delicious croissants, but something was just a little bit different. They has sesame seeds on them. Then I saw the words "pretzel croissant" and my head exploded. I bought one. I tasted it. I was Homer Simpson, drooling and muttering things like "butter", "salty", "so good", "aaaggghhhhhhllllllll", etc.
Imagine this: the best, flakiest croissant you have ever eaten meets a delicious, perfect German soft pretzel while at Octoberfest in Munich. One thing leads to another and the result is this heavenly, hearty, savory and salty crescent shaped gem.
