If you’re looking to feast on the flakiest, softest croissants in Vancouver – we’ve got good news for you. The city’s first-ever croissant crawl is slated for early October, and the self-guided tour will take you to 10 of the best spots for croissants in the area.

“When I moved to Vancouver earlier this year, I was on the hunt for new friends and go-to eats,” explains Crawl organizer Laura Jo on her website. “Why not do both at the same time? I invited a few fellow moms to a croissant crawl downtown. I realized I wanted to scale and elevate the idea for others in the city to enjoy together.”

The croissants

From the classic French pastry to limited edition flavours and croissant sandwiches – here are the participating vendors on the crawl:
