Something You Should Eat: Almond croissant from Julius Meinl
Most people come for the coffee, but I always think of a visit to Julius Meinl as a double-feature. That is, I can't have the Viennese-style coffee all by itself; I need to pair it with their luscious almond croissant as well. As good as the flaky pastry is, it is significantly enhanced by the rich, almond-laced cream that is tucked inside, between the layers. It's not something I would have everyday, but when I do, it strikes the perfect note between rich/creamy and delicate/flaky.
