Boulangerie de Croquignoles: Verbier, Switzerland
Verbier is that rare place in which travelers exercise and
party in equal measure. A day of off-piste skiing isn’t complete without a rich
raclette supper, drinking and dancing. Crowning it all is one phenomenal secret
address, located just outside the town square: Boulangerie de Croquignoles. The
bakers begin their morning just as weekenders are ending their night. Knock on
the window and a hand will appear, bearing a hot croissant in exchange for
about $5. A most symbiotic relationship! The macaroons are also worth the trip. Route des Creux 22; verbier.ch.
