If not, CultureMap has compiled a list of some of our favorite pastries around town, so whether you have a craving for savory or sweet, are located inside the Loop or out, we've got you covered.
Croissant-Brioche French Bakery & Cafe in Rice Village makes a mean chocolate croissant. Try to catch them fresh out of the oven.
For the Mediterranean-inclined, Phoenicia boasts nearly 20 types of baklava at multiple locations (the hazelnut chocolate is simply divine), or grab some spanakopita for lunch.
If you're in the mood for something savory, head to Hot Breads on Hillcroft. We promise you'll love the fusion pastries.
Vegan? No problem! Sinfull Bakery has created a delicious, deceptive, dairy-free cinnamon roll, available at a number of locations around town.
Three Brothers Bakery offers a variety of kosher pastries, and we hear it bakes the best hamantaschen in Houston.
Stop by Epicure Café in River Oaks for a specialty European pastry — or for a croissant sandwich.
A colorful Mexican pastry can really brighten up your day. El Bolillo Bakery has many options at both the Heights location and on the Southeast Loop.
