If you’re in Montauk this weekend and have yet to stop off for one Montauk Bake Shoppe’s famous Jelly Croissants, then now is the time. Since Pastry Chef Dominque Ansel introduced the Cronut last year, there have been many (some good, some bad) imitators. But in Montauk, they’ve had the croissant-meets-the-donut thing going for awhile. Grab one of the bakery’s sugar-coated fresh croissants filled with raspberry jelly, and you’ll forget all about waiting in line before sunrise for a Cronut in NYC.
