Your Cart is Empty

Located in the Village, Some Crust Bakery is definitely the culinary gem of Claremont. It is a quality bakery by most standards but the raves it recieves from the people of Claremont can be partially attributed to the fact that the food options in Claremont, especially in terms of bakeries, are really limited. Some Crust opens up at 7:30 (on Sundays) but there are plenty of people milling out in front of the shop by 7 am, eagerly awaiting their daily indulgence.
I stopped in around 9 this morning and was delighted to discover that they had just taken out a fresh batch of croissants. Hooray! I quickly purchased one ($1.75) and ran to the Starbucks next door to devour my baked good (they had no more seating in the bakery).
Oh yes. It was good, though nothing like a traditional French croissant. I suppose you could say they “Americanized” it with excessive (even more so than the usual croissant) quantities of butter. The croissant was slightly under baked, resulting in a doughy interior, but the crust was satisfyingly delicious. A rich, thick, nearly pie-like crust was flaky and shortbread like at the same time – I hope that made sense. It was like a cross between a normal croissant crust, pie crust and shortbread cookie. Then throw in the words “warm” and “buttery” and that’s what I had. Nothing beats fresh pastries on a Sunday morning.
Some Crust offers a myriad of pastries and breads from scones and danishes to challah and sourdoughs. Most of their products like the bear claws and crumb cakes look really sweet so I tend to stick to the more “neutral” or savory goods. They also have a sandwich shop next door, which I have yet to try. The service is a bit surly and could be improved, but as long as I have a warm croissant in hand and perhaps a cup of chai, I’ll be perfectly happy.
