Cronuts are the newest latest thing. People are lining up for before 7 a.m. outside Dominique Ansel Bakery, at 189 Spring St., near Thompson St., to get these scrumptious half-croissant / half-donuts, which sell out by 8:30 a.m. The delicacies debuted two weeks ago. Just to give a little taste: The “rose cronut” ($5) is filled with vanilla ganache, dusted with rose sugar and topped with rose glaze. Lora Woodruff, right, visiting from Portland, Oregon, came straight from the airport to Soho to start her Memorial Day trip to New York, waiting in line for more than an hour so she could buy cronuts. She snapped a photo of her haul to send home to her husband, then offered a cronut to a passing fellow who inquired about them, above.
