9 Bean Rows’ Almond Croissant

Jan. 21, 2023

Say so long to your New Year’s resolutions of skipping the sweets. (Don’t worry—this is worth it.) The almond croissant from 9 Bean Rows in Suttons Bay is like breakfast and dessert rolled into one, freshly baked and packed with almondy, buttery goodness that would give the French a run for their money. These croissants are perfectly flaky, though the almond filling helps hold things together a bit more to make less mess. If you don’t catch yours right out of the oven, put it in the microwave or toaster oven for a quick warm-up and pair with your favorite coffee drink for a breakfast, snack, or sweet evening treat. (Yes, we’ve even eaten one of these for dinner.) Find the croissants at 9 Bean Rows, 9000 E. Duck Lake Rd. in Suttons Bay, as supplies last. You can also order ahead online at, or find them at a select few local establishments or farmers markets.
