Chicana – Breathtaking croissants!

Every confectionery has their own specialities. But some are way more special than others. Chicana’s croissant is something out of the ordinary, that completely justifies the pilgrimage to this small place near São Lázaro garden.

When it comes down to croissants, there are a several of schools of taste: some prefer the classic French ones, made of pastry, some like them dry, excellent to go with tea or coffee, and there are some people who prefer the croissant when it’s almost an uncooked dough. Well, if you are fond of the latter (or if you’ve never tried it but you love the sound of it), Chicana is a temple to be worshipped at.

I must admit I wasn’t aware of this amazing croissant for a long time (too long!), but nowadays I try to go there once in a while, to carve my teeth on those little bits of goodness. The service is pretty good, with all the workers goofing around with each other, just the way I love it.

So, do yourself a favour: go there, ask for a croissant (simple or with whatever) and accompany it with a beverage. You can thank me later.
