Slide to the left, slide to the right… Criss Cross.
No, we’re not telling you do the Cha Cha Slide this time (although by all means, go ahead); we’re passing on the news of the all-new London café that’s dedicated entirely to croissants.
While you may think of croissants as that quick and easy breakfast you grab alongside a strong coffee as you’re running late to your first meeting, Criss Cross has other ideas. They’ve entirely transformed the image of croissants to become a thing of sheer beauty. I mean, just take a look at them…
This can still be your handy breakfast or afternoon snack, but you’re going to be hit with a meld of flavours inside you might not have even imagined could be packed into that pastry. Matcha and blueberry croissant that resembles something like the garden of Eden? Yes bloody please!
Criss Cross’s delectable concoctions are all as easy on the eyes as the lips, with both sweet and savoury options to make your mouth water. Have you ever even considered eating a croissant with soya whiskey, cured salmon and seaweed? Didn’t think so, but I’ll be your feeling peckish now.
Though there’s no confirmed opening date as of yet, the spot is arriving into Soho this month, so you can come and bask in the glory of croissants very soon. A truffle and cheese croissant followed by a sweet ice cream filled flavour would certainly not go amiss over at this end. Plus, on launch day (TBA), the first 100 lucky customers will receive their croissant of choice absolutely free. Pastry dreamland.
You’ll find Criss Cross at 49 Old Compton Street, Soho, W1D 6HL (nearest station is Leicester Square). Follow Criss Cross on Instagram.
