Some of the heaviest hitters in the croissant game are these enormous cube-shaped croissants, courtesy of Le Deli Robuchon. Choose from fillings including vanilla and caramel or raspberry and rose – or sample a savoury option like the comté and truffle or avocado and salmon. One of these handsome pastries might set you back a whopping £14.50, but if you’re after a croissant that tastes as impressive as it looks, you can’t go wrong with anything from the Robuchon team. Plus, if you’d rather not dish out quite so much cash, you can opt for one of the many other pastries on the menu instead, from pistachio and raspberry eclairs to a classic apple tatin.

XXL Croissants From Philippe Conticini

Feeling a little peckish? You’ll need to be famished if you want to get through one of Philippe Conitcini’s gigantic croissants, which cost £25 and could comfortably serve a family of four. If this feels like overkill, don’t fret – you can tuck into a classic pain au chocolat or indulge in an exceedingly decadent ‘supreme croissant’, filled with either chocolate or pistachio cream.

If you’re in the mood for something savoury, you can’t get much better than Fallow’s signature croissant rolls. The Salmon Belly Royale is our pick: complete with salmon parfait, hollandaise sauce, lemon mayo and a fried egg – all packed between two circular slabs of pastry – it’s a real treat.

Aptly named ‘brionuts’, the brioche donuts at Comptoir Bakery don’t just look the part – they taste rather heavenly, too. Whether you opt for the pistachio, hazelnut or raspberry flavour, you can tear apart the dome-shaped pastry and find a hefty amount of cream filling inside.
