Five Random Thoughts I Had As I Stood In This 45-Minute Line at Cream Pan On Mother's Day Morning

1. There'd better be some strawberry croissants left by the time I get to the front.

2. They need more than two cash registers.

3. Supermarkets may have rendered neighborhood butchers obsolete; but neighborhood bakers like this are here to stay.

4. They need a strawberry-croissants-only express lane.

5. I wonder what the line at 85 Degrees looks like right about now?

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I believe Cream Pan used to have 2 sizes of strawberry croissant but they only have the small ones now. To Cesar Jaime my impression of Paris Baguette is different - they are more expensive and the foods are not as good. I don't think there is one Asian bakery that is on par with Cream Pan. And as a customer of Cream Pan for the last 10 years, I have to say their quality has always been very consistent. I still don't understand the 85 degree craziness. Much rather go to Cream Pan and be in and out in 15 minutes.

My favorite place and I totally agree for an express line for just strawberry croissants...but have you noticed how much smaller the croissants got?????
