That French Place’s Blueberry Cream Cheese Croissants

By Anna Faller | July 22, 2023

Nestled in downtown Charlevoix, That French Place is all about treating our Midwest tastebuds to classic French recipes, and their seasonal Blueberry Cream Cheese Croissants ($4.50) are so authentic, they should come with plane tickets. Each batch begins with imported French butter folded into scratch-made dough. From there, these impossibly-flaky pastries are sprinkled with crunchy sugar and baked before being stuffed with a dollop of sweetened cream cheese and topped with a tangy blueberry compote, made in house with Dhaseleer Farm’s fruit. Grab a few to go, and you’ll swear you’re walking along the Seine. But be sure to get there early—these little delights can only be ordered in person, and they’re selling out faster than gâteau chauds (that’s hotcakes)! Find That French Place at 212 Bridge St., in Charlevoix. (231) 437-6037. Place other orders online at (call ahead for larger orders), and follow along on social media @that_french_place.
