Did you know Croissants are made in a diamond pastry shape? I didn’t know until now… Lune Croissante is based in Fitzroy, but they opened up a Collins St x Russell St shopfront. It’s really at Russell St, but the building is on Collins St – a little bit confusing for first timers.
When I visited it was around 12.30pm, only two people were in line so not much of a wait for me. Sadly, Lemon Curd, $7.20 was sold out!! They open at 7.30am and sold out Lemon Curd croissant already! Only the others were left…
By the time I finished ordering, the line was out the door! This is not the first time I’ve been to Lune Croissanterie on Collins St, don’t be surprised that the lines surround the shopfront…
The Peanut & Choc Croissant, $11 was packed full of peanut and choc. Dense when you reach the chocolate and nutty throughout the croissant. I reckon this one is better eaten onsite when it’s fresh from the oven. J who loves peanut thought it was too much for his “healthy appetite”. For the health conscious friends, this might not be the one for you. J still preferred the Traditional Croissant, $5.90 light and crispy to the point where each pieces shreds off as you hold then croissant. Out of the three, the most delicate was Traditional.
Almond Croissant, $9.20 was the right sweetness for me. I would describe some almond croissants to be a dessert rather than for breakfast, this one was good for breakfast :). Almonds were so flaky that it would fall off into the paper takeaway bag. I couldn’t waste the almonds, so I finished off all residue left in the bag
Overall, I’d take friends and family who travel from afar to try Lune Croissant or as a celebratory treat. Because of the price, I wouldn’t purchase this on a regular basis. It’s definitely a treat!
