The namesake all-butter croissants are certainly one reason to frequent Croissan' Time French Bakery (1201 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale, 954-565-8555). But they're not the only one: The bakery also stocks some of the best napoleons and eclairs in town, not to mention wonderful cakes and pies, breads, baguettes, and rolls. You can even order a quiche or a pate sandwich at the counter, and follow it up with a scoop of homemade ice cream. But the items that intrigue me most are the hand-molded chocolates shaped like various land and sea creatures. Cast in dark, milk, or white chocolate, the curious little treats are quite delicious and make the perfect gift for the animal-lover -- or, if you look at it another way, the animal-hater -- in your life.
