Who makes the best Cronut knockoff in Sacramento? It’s ultimately a matter of personal preference, but I’m sure many would argue Estelle’s Patisserie. Its croissant-doughnut hybrid known as the “croixnut” is taller, lighter and less greasy than the competition.
And here’s some great news for those fans: Earlier this month, Estelle’s (901 K Street) started serving its croixnuts every day. Every. Day.
The baked varieties go for $3.75 and the fried for $4.50. Previously, Estelle’s only served its classic cinnamon sugar-dusted croixnuts on Tuesdays and a special rotating flavor—filled with custard, to boot—on Sundays. Specials will still be reserved for Sundays, and those go for $5. So far, Estelle’s has been running out pretty early every morning, but you can call ahead to reserve your treats.
