3 hours. $10. And a dream. Well, definitely not that last one. If you want to taste the sweet deliciousness that is a New York Cronut, you might have to sacrifice some sleep for it. I got in line for two of these babies at 5:45am on Saturday July, 20th. By the time I arrived, the line at Dominique Ansel Bakery was already about 20 people deep. By 6:15, the line had turned the corner. By 7:00, you might as well head home (the line was well over 150 people). They only bakes 200 of the flaky pastries per day, so get there EARLY! Dominique Ansel suggests arriving at least two hours before opening. People brought books, ipads, beach chairs, basically anything to keep them entertained and comfortable while they patiently waited for the bakery doors to open. Was it worth it?
OF COURSE! LOOK AT THIS BEAUTY!
