Croissant Du Jour

 Croissant Du Jour, 3531 Mt Vernon Rd SE, Cedar Rapids

Last weekend my sisters Patty, Cathy and I got together for a little "sister" time.  Cathy had suggested that we meet for breakfast at Croissant Du Jour which is blocks from her home.  Walking in the door you felt like you were in a French cafe.  The music, the decor, everything contributed to a wonderful ambiance! The display case  was filled with wonderful, yummy looking pastries.  The lady who took our order had a wonderful French accent.  We each ordered something different along with lattes.  And WOW were they great!  Here is what they looked like:

Almond Croissant

  Chocolate Croissant

Fruit Tart

So which would I recommend...no doubt in my mind - the fruit tart.  The price was $4.00 - very reasonable for what you get.  Very filling, very tasty, and isn't it lovely to look at?  I had ordered the almond croissant, Patty ordered the chocolate croissant and Cathy the fruit tart.  Cathy had offered tastes of her tart to both Patty and I and I was smitten!  I got a "to go" bag for my croissant and ordered a fruit tart - which was delicious.  I would highly recommend it. 

The hours for Croissant Du Jour are Monday to Friday 6:30 to 4:00, and Saturday from 7:00 to 4:00.  They also serve lunch Monday thru Saturday from 11:00 to 2:00.  Web address is: www.croissantdujour.biz   Check them out!
