Cruffin: a hybrid of a croissant and muffin, created and trademarked by Mr. Holmes Bakehouse in San Francisco, and which requires an hour wait before being devoured in three mouthfuls. Flavors change every day: pistachio-raspberry, mango-coco, fig-honey, pick your poison. If the line is too long, here is the secret: you can jump the queue and enter the store in a heartbeat if you’re not here for cruffins: doughnuts (there’s a negroni one!), tartlets, churro croissants, and so on. Before you leave, make sure to grab your phone with your sugarcoated fingers and snap the “I got baked in Los Angeles” neon sign…
