Bare with us...we're a bakery, not Google, and we can't control the site traffic. We built this website as a means to help customers find an alternative way to reach us, but we also experience very heavy traffic, so certain times the site may stall. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience. We do offer the items daily in the bakery.
Welcome to the official Cronut® Pastry Preorder system of Dominique Ansel Bakery, the birthplace of the Cronut® pastry (Beta)! This allows you to reserve and pre-purchase your Cronut® pastry. For more information on how to get the Cronut® in alternative ways , please visit us at www.dominiqueansel.com/cronut-101/. Please note that these pre-orders are for IN-STORE PICK UP ONLY.
HOW TO PRE-ORDER THE CRONUT® PASTRY ON THIS SITE:
- Every Monday at 11am EST sharp, we will open up the system for PREORDERS. The site will NOT be opened for orders before then.
- Orders are taken for the entire week two weeks out from the Monday date. For example, on Monday,
November 30th, we will open up the entire week of December 14th thru December 20th.
- The maximum number available per person per pre-order is 6 Cronut® pastries per week. Please do not attempt to order from multiple dates above this maximum number as it could interfere with your order from showing up on our systems.
- Please make a note of your pick up date and time as due to the volume of orders, we are unable to send reminders prior to pick up.
- Our items cannot be resold or advertised without permission, which will lead to an immediately cancellation of the order.
- Due to large amount of customer requests, we are unable to provide extra Cronut pastry boxes for each order and charge an additional $1.00 (the direct price from our suppliers) for each extra custom Cronut box. We will package each Cronut in the appropriate size box for the full order.
- All orders are final, and there are no exchanges, refunds, or rescheduled dates. (Items not retrieved on the set pick up date will have to be disposed as the pastries are highly perishable.)
- Please note that our Thanksgiving hours are from 8am to 1pm (we are closing early).
PICK UP INSTRUCTIONS:
- Once you have secured a Cronut® pastry pre-order, please print out your receipt and bring it to the shop. The order is linked to the NAME/EMAIL on the order, so please make sure you supply the cashier with the right name.
- You do not need to wait in line to pick up a pre-order and can go straight to the cashier. Please note that we may have heavy traffic at times, and so we appreciate your patience in waiting as we fetch your order.
We do one flavor of the Cronut® pastry per month. For December, it's Gingerbread Valrhona Milk Chocolate and Pear (with cinnamon sugar and a speculoos cookie). We will announce the December flavor on the last week of November. Price per Cronut® pastry: $5.00 (pre-tax) Note: because of the high demand and small inventory, it is easy for a day to sell out between the time you load the page and by the time you press "Buy Now". Our apologies. Please try another date. If a purchase is not completed in 10 minutes, the items in the cart are released back to the inventory. This means that new inventory may be released from those held in shopping carts even after you see a "Sold Out" sign. Please do check back.
