Can I bring my items to go?

About the Cronut®

We begin offering freshly made Cronut® pastries every morning in the store 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, and London. Please be aware of imitation items claiming affiliation with the Bakery.

Can I pre-order Cronut® pastries?

Yes! You can pre-order up to 10 Cronut® pastries online HERE, for pick-ups in-store at Dominique Ansel Bakery (located on our 1st floor) with 48 hrs notice.

HOW TO PRE-ORDER:
Pre-order up to 10 Cronut® pastries per person via our online boutique at DominiqueAnselLA.com/shop, with at least 48 hours advance notice (you can skip the line this way too!). Each Cronut® pastry is $6.00 (pre-tax)

All orders are final, and there are no exchanges, refunds, or rescheduled dates. (Items not retrieved on the set pick up date will have to be disposed as the pastries are highly perishable.)

PICK UP INSTRUCTIONS:
Once you've secured a pre-order, please print your receipt and bring it to the shop. The order is linked to the NAME/EMAIL on the order, so please make sure you supply the cashier with the right name.

You do not need to wait in line to pick up a pre-order and can go straight to the cashier. Please note we may have heavy traffic at times, so we appreciate your patience as we fetch your order.
