The French Cronut {A splendid treat from Mille-Feuille Bakery}

The French Donut

In case you haven’t yet heard of the latest craze in town, the Cronut, it’s a combination of a croissant and a donut.

Yes. Decadent.

Last week I had the pleasure of tasting the three flavors now available at Mille-Feuille, which is one of my favorite bakeries here in New York City. At Mille-Feuille, they’re simply called, in good taste, French Donuts.

Mille-Feuille’s French Donut is comprised of buttery croissant layers in the shape of a donut and each contains a sumptuous filling. Since the Wall Street Journal claims that Mille-Feuille has the best croissants in the city, I’m sure their French Donuts are going to receive the same accolades—and with good reason: layers, beauty, taste, and fillings concocted by a French baker.

The three flavors sold at Mille-Feuille are:

  • Chocolate
  • Vanilla Bean
  • Raspberry

Each one is outstanding on its own, but the raspberry stood out, a star among stars.

They just went on sale so indulge your sweet tooth and nibble on a French Donut.

Here’s my tasting assistant about to take a bite.



  1. I’m so looking forward to my next foray in NYC. With your hit list of all the best places to eat in hand, it is going to be a culinary delight to say the least.

  2. Oh my. Now I know I MUST plan a return visit sooner rather than later and treat myself to a CROnut. Why didn’t I think of that? Decadent, indeed.

  3. It’s VERY decadent. I only tasted them that one time. My daughter is attending a weaving class nearby but I’ve resisted as I walk by. But the place is so adorable, and they also have wonderful macarons, so we should meet there on your next visit.

  4. I’m encouraged this website by way of the step-brother. I am not optimistic whether or not it posting will be written by the pup since nobody know this kind of correct concerning our issues. You happen to be amazing! Thank you so much!

  5. Hi Tracey, I’ll be visiting NYC the end of September and was wondering what day of the week and time did you go to the bakery? I want to plan out my itinerary and be sure that I’ll be able to try one of these French donuts. Thanks!
