Once you visit either location of Almondine, you may try to find out how you can live in the building above the bakery. Amazing croissants and pastries greet you as you walk into this often crowded bakery. Go early and beat the tourists in the DUMBO location and bring plenty of cash because you will not leave empty handed. If you are in Park Slope you will just fight off the strollers. The croissants might just be the best in Brooklyn and their breads are always fresh.
