There are now three places to buy great croissants in the space of a little more than two blocks in downtown Bethesda. Thanks to Fresh Baguette and PAUL on Bethesda Avenue, and La Bohemia Bakery at the Farm Women’s Market, buttery breakfasts abound. Each shop’s pastry differs in appearance, taste and texture, and it takes only a short walk to compare them.

Our pick: Fresh Baguette’s, for its flaky, crisp crust and intricate labyrinth of layered dough.

Fresh Baguette, 4919 Bethesda Ave., Bethesda; (301) 656-0000; www.freshbaguette.net

PAUL, 4760 Bethesda Ave., Bethesda; (301) 656-3285; www.paul-usa.com

La Bohemia Bakery at the Farm Women’s Market, 7155 Wisconsin Ave., Bethesda (on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays); (240) 360-3697; labohemiabakery.com
