NYC has a long history of upgrading the basic croissant, from City Bakery's Pretzel Croissant to the almighty Cronut® -- but there's one variation the city has been missing up until this point: a stuffed croissant.

That's where Union Fare comes in. Since opening earlier this year, the massive Union Square gastrohall has been making croissants in traditional cake flavors (red velvet, birthday cake) and stuffing them with with custard. The red velvet in particular is made with cream cheese custard and topped with red velvet icing and cake crumbles. It's not exactly the cleanest thing to consume while rushing into the office, but if you're craving dessert in the AM, this is what you need. Find out more about Union Fare's stuffed croissants by checking out the video above.

1. Union Fare 6 E 18th St, New York, NY 10003 (Union Square)

This massive 25,000sqft space inside the old Union Square Barnes & Noble has it all: a food hall, cafe, bakery, bar, and restaurant. The full-service restaurant emphasizes seasonal American food, and its menu is appropriately packed with oysters, charcuterie, seafood and vegetable plates, and entrées like crispy baked chicken and Maine lobster fettucine. Separate from the restaurant, Union Fare's so-called “gastrohall” serves salads, pizza, poke, tacos, burgers, and pastries all day long.
