A couple of years ago, the world was blessed with something special. A treat that featured the soft, spongy interior of a doughnut, and the delicate, flaky outer layer of a croissant, and alas, the cronut was born. Brainchild of New York based pastry chef Dominique Ansel, the signature recipe was created after several attempts over two months, and once finally perfected, took the food world on a serious sugar high.

A Wahroonga institution, here the cronut oozes delicious chocolate custard, topped off with a glistening chocolate glaze and almond flakes. This layered pinnacle of sweetness is certainly worth the drive north side!
The Grumpy Barista
Does an Oreo crumble cronut with a creamy Nutella syringe make you think things about food you never thought possible? Because this is just one of the superb cronut creations you’ll find at the Grumpy Barista.
The Nutella does sound a tad decadent, but the custard filling on the inside balances the sweetness of the overall cronut so you won’t have to stop at just one. But be swift, as these high demand layers of heaven usually run out first.
The café also dishes out mean breakfast and coffee options, so the next time you’re in Petersham and can’t decide between brunch and something sweet, head over to the Grumpy Barista for next level cronuts in the comfort of a rustic little espresso bar.

The colourful cronuts from Speedo’s are a social media sensation in their own right, and they’re known to make even a hardened health nut go weak at the knees.
