We came here on a Monday morning in July around 8:00ish and it was not crowded and the line was short. Since the strawberry croissants seem to be the specialty, we bought a 6-pack to eat there for breakfast and some an-pan (red-bean buns) for later. There were a bunch of tables outside, which were empty so we ate there. The croissants are not very large, so we ate 2 each. Very tasty with the fresh strawberries, rich pastry cream and flaky pastry. Service was friendly and efficient.

Due to COVID I'm sure the line looked longer tan it was, but it was Saturday morning at about 10:00. I can see why the strawberry banana croissants are so popular, they are wonderful. The light spread of Nutella really make them pop. Strawberry croissant also good but nut as much without the Nutella. Cream pan was okay, like a King's Hawaiian roll with cream filling and a little streusel on top. After eating the bites without cream the remainder of the bun is anti-climactic, same with the choco horn, but the cream filling was chocolatty. The savory cheese Boule was very good, a yeastie roll with plenty of good cheesee. The blueberry croissant was average. My wife loved the pear tart, because it had more filling than just pears, something sort of custardy. Steamed pork bun was just okay.

Cream Pan is a local secret gem in Tustin. I would have given them 5 stars if they would do a basic renovation and clean up the area where coffee customers can sit and enjoy a delicious "Cream Pan" (a cream filled, light pastry). The product is FANTASTIC, but the interior of the place needs work, and some serious cleaning. .

Cream Pan offers a lot of food options, mostly Chinese fare but what keeps up coming back time and time again is their wonderful cream-filled/strawberry croissants. We often serve them as desserts for our guests and the NEVER disappoint! Don't be put off by the lines; it tends to move pretty quickly.
