Whether you've got a full set of sweet teeth or you're a salt-and-butter fiend to the end, skipping a trip to Buttermilk Bakery would be a big mistake. We love the bright, juicy pop-tarts and the dense, insanely rich brownies, but their croissants – the true test of a baker – are the pastries that really stand out. They're shatteringly crisp and meltingly buttery, filled with sweet almond paste or rich chocolate on the sweet side, or sophisticated savory combos like smoked cheddar and charred jalapeño or mushroom and Gruyére.
