My husband and I just came back from the 2011 Sugar Bowl. We stayed at Hotel Villa Convento (across the street from Croissant D' Patisserie.) This restaurant has the best almond croissants I have ever tasted!! Their King Cakes are excellent, too!! The worst part was they were closed on Tuesdays--(street cleaning day.) The restaurant staff is friendly and helpful and can suggest mornings foods for your ""extreme headache."" I can't wait to go back!!
