Can I bring my items to go?

At the restaurant, we currently do not offer delivery services, but we are happy to wrap up anything unfinished so you can enjoy it at home.

The majority of the menu at Dominique Ansel Bakery can be taken to go. Because our items are baked fresh daily and due to the delicate nature of many of our pastries, we recommend enjoying them day-of. Please ask our staff if you have any questions about storage instructions and taking our items to-go.

HOW TO PRE-ORDER:
Every Monday at 11am PT sharp, we will open up the system for online pre-orders at https://la.cronutpreorder.com. The site will NOT be opened for orders before then. Orders are taken for the entire week two weeks out from the Monday date.

Cronut®:

We begin offering freshly made Cronut® pastries every morning when the bakery opens at 9am. We recommend arriving early!

As with all of our pastries, Cronut® pastries are made fresh each morning and are best enjoyed as soon as possible, as they have a short shelf life of just 6-8 hours.

If you are taking Cronut® pastries home, please do not refrigerate! The humidity from the refrigerator will make them soggy. Do not re-heat Cronut® pastries or serve them warm or hot, as the ganache filling will liquify. And if you do wish to cut your Cronut®, please use a serrated knife, so as not to crush the layers.

The Cronut® brand and product is a registered trademark of Dominique Ansel Bakery in the U.S. and in most countries internationally. Cronut® pastries are only available in our locations in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and London. Please be aware of imitation items claiming affiliation with the Bakery.

We fill our Cookie Shots with our homemade cold-infused Tahitian vanilla milk. Please consume once the milk is poured inside!

Please do not re-heat the Cookie Shots at home as they are lined with dark chocolate on the inside and will melt.
