after years spent scouring cambridge and its environs for a decent croissant, i finally unearthed a great one last weekend in an almost comically french bakery/bistro ... in wellfleet, ma. observe the admirable lamination and caramelization, comparable to this. their tropezienne is worthwhile too.
i have also discovered that the shake shack has finally decided to open a massachusetts outpost ... in chestnut hill.
there is no justice.
