The team at Alexandria’s Textbook Boulangerie-Patisserie are known for making some of the most delicious croissants in the entire country, among many other treats. It’s why there’s queues out the door on most days, and that kind of buzz is only set to grow during Mardi Gras weekend with the introduction of the Golden Gaytime Croissant.
For just two days – Sat 2nd and Sun 3rd – this small patisserie on Botany Road will be offering up these gorgeous rainbow croissants flecked with colourful Callebaut Chocolate pieces and holding in a creamy blend of caramel, chantilly and caramel pepites. Their post about it on Instagram is already going gangbusters, to absolutely no one’s surprise, so we expect demand to be pretty damn substantial by the time Saturday rolls around.
Each Golden Gaytime Croissant will set you back a cool $12.50, which isn’t too bad considering how generous their filled croissants usually are. We also suggest giving their regular range a good twice-over when you’re queuing up – Textbook really is one of the best in town.
