Has Cronut hysteria finally begun to die down? Eater NY operatives found no line and "plenty of Cronuts to be had" at New York City's Dominique Ansel Bakery this morning at 10:00 AM. This despite the fact that a sign declared them to be sold out; apparently the sign is "just a permanent fixture at this point."
All Summer, Cronuts inspired imitators around the world and Ansel's bakery boasted massive lines that were so long celebrities tried to use their fame to skip them (and failed). But it seems that since Labor Day, there's been "at least one day a week when the coveted pastry doesn't sell out." Nevertheless, the bakery still had a typically long line Sunday morning. Line-haters too cool to wait for Cronuts all Summer, now is your moment.
UPDATE: Dominique Ansel tweets: "Actually not because less people in line, but more Cronuts...increased production in Sept." So Cronut mania will last forever.
