Swiss Bakery became very popular a few years ago when they started making frissants, their version of cronuts. A cronut is a cross between a croissant and a doughnut. The original creators of the cronut is the Dominique Ansel bakery in New York. You end up with a tall and fluffy doughnut with a memorable crunchy exterior. I heard people would line up for hours to get their hands on one.
Swiss Bakery bakes many other products as well like scones, croissants and pretzels. My eating partner loves getting their pretzel creations and they even have a pretzel croissant!
They also bake a variety of breads.
Here is some of their menu.
Here is our table full of treats. We got the ham & cheese croissant, mini frissants and the regular size frissants (to take home).
The croissant was very good. I liked how a piece of ham was rolled up in the center with the cheese.
I appreciated that Swiss Bakery made their frissants in 2 different sizes. I felt like having some of both flavour offerings today so I didn’t want to commit to a large frissant. The flavours today were salted caramel and sangria.
I am usually a huge salted caramel fan but the sangria was my favourite of the 2. I loved the fresh berry jelly pouring out of the center with each bite. Even though I knew a frissant is loaded with butter and all things good, the freshness of the berry center really brightened up the dessert.
Here is a close up of the regular sized frissants. Look at how tall they are!
If you are going specifically for frissants, its best to go earlier in the day as they tend to sell out. When you are in the mood for decadent and unique dessert creations, check out Swiss Bakery in Vancouver.
