I lived in Eugene, OR for three weeks this summer per my husband, JT, (who, btw, is now blogging(!)) who is from the area. This summer, we've been moving around a lot. We are pros at living out of a suitcase. In keeping this summer's theme of living la vida vagabond, we crashed at one of his BFF's place for our time there. I spent three awesome weeks of mornings exploring Eugene's coffee shop scene, of course, always on the recruit for almond croissants. Everywhere I went, even if the shop offered an almond croissant, they'd point to Eugene City Bakery as the benchmark for Eugene's almond croissant. Apparently, this is the only joint in Emerald City that makes their own croissant dough.
Upon entering Eugene City Bakery, you want to order at least five items (read: pastries) for breakfast. My commitment to eating an almond croissant for breakfast was nearly jeopardized by the sight of its sexy, cheese stuffed savory counterparts.
