Michel's Baguette1 Bass Pro Mills Drive, Vaughan
The Worst Croissant and service experience from this franchise
Submitted Monday, March 25, 2013 - 6:03am [Take-out]

The first time I tried their croissants it was horribly bad possibly from day before, worse then something from any supermarket but at a premium price. I was a little surprised since the same product at Yorkdale or RBC Plaza franchise locations that I have tried are decent. Since the first time was at the end of the day, I thought that I'd give them a second chance and try their croissants again but this time in the morning when it will be the best it will possibly be. To my disappointment, the croissants were only nominally better then the last time. Although not stale this time, the Croissant was soft and bready and not even close to the kind of hard carmelized, flaky layered texture and aromatic with full buttery scent you would expect from a premium priced croissant. My suspicion is that this establishment is likely cutting corners, cheaping out on ingredients, like quality butter and creating a subpar product not even comparable to their other franchise locations. However, if you are looking for quality croissants and pastries, I would recommend going to a real French bakery. Service was also very poor, evident in the micro-management of simple retail transactions. Overall, a FAIL and after giving them a second chance will Never return again.
