How to 菓子パン

I just sent out the May newsletter. I wrote about my love of 菓子パン (kashipan). The croissant above I don’t think technically counts as 菓子パン? My theory is that anything laminated and/or crunchy is a European-style pastry. 菓子パン are defined by their softness, to a certain extent. But I just had to share the image here because it’s one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever eaten. This is the cafe. Their pastries and meal sets are incredible. I’ve been once for the croissant and once for a quiche. Will need to go back and try more in the near future.
