Looking for the best and flakiest croissants in Lebanon?

1. Biscuit Patisserie and Bakery: All varieties

Visit at any time of the day and Biscuit will warmly welcome you with that oh-so-delicious bakery smell which completely takes over all your senses. Visit in the morning; that smell is three times as strong with the freshly baked goods just coming out of the oven. Stay focused, we’re here for the croissants! Among these delectable goodies are the croissants: from zaatar (thyme) and cheese to almond and chocolate, together with my personal favourite, plain. Biscuit’s croissants are golden, flaky and buttery, with a soft center; the way they’re supposed to be. They also make mini croissants on request, which I love since I get to have more of those crunchy crumbly edges!

 2. Paul: All varieties

Of course, Paul made the “Best Croissants in Lebanon” list, and with good reason! This café-restaurant has over 100 years of experience into creating the ultimate perfect croissant: a crisp crust with a delicately layered soft center. You can get your croissant dose from Paul in their morning formula with a delicious omelet, butter and jam, fresh orange juice and coffee or tea for just under $20!

3. La Petite Table: All varieties

I visited the newly opened La Petite Table for brunch recently and it has definitely landed on my list of favourite breakfast spots. Not only for that decadent chocolate bread pudding (featured here, but for their delicious flaky croissants! The croissants are wonderfully rich and buttery. My favourite was undoubtedly the plain version.

4. Le Grenier à Pain: Almond Croissant

Just a few minutes’ walk away from Paul Bakery, Le Grenier à Pain offers an absolutely delicious almond croissant with such a lovely presentation! The nutty, flaky croissant encloses a luscious sweet crème pâtissière (custard) filling and is topped with sliced almonds, powdered sugar and more custard.

 5. Sibon: Croissant Knefe

Okay, so technically you’re not coming to Sibon for the croissant itself. You’re coming for their Chocolate Croissant Knefe, or “Cronefe” – yes it’s a mouthful, and yes, I mean literally. A very delicious mouthful! The “knefe” is topped with a thick and creamy chocolate spread instead of the syrup we call “ater”. It suffices to say that you won’t be eating anything else for the rest of the day (and the next). Who’s in?

The fact that the articles doesn't mention the price range makes it useless for me TBH.
