The Dominique Ansel Bakery reopened Tuesday morning with a line of fans once again eager to get their hands on the coveted "Cronut" after it was temporarily shut down Friday

A customer shot video of a mouse inside the store, prompting a Department of Health investigation.

The investigation revealed a severe mouse infestation, which they said required professional pest control services.

On Tuesday, the bakery served a special edition Rocky-themed "Cronut" featuring dark chocolate icing with a golden star to symbolize the bakery's dedication and resilience.

"Cronut" fans who lined up early to get the sweet treat say they're glad the problem has been resolved.

"The rain is not pleasant. The mouse situation, well, this is probably the best time to come here because they just cleaned everything up and also people might be kind of afraid to come down here because of the mice so maybe the line will be shorter today," said one eager cronut fan.

"I've already tried this flavor already and I think it's probably one of my favorite ones which is part of the reason I'm out here and also just in support of the bakery because I felt like the whole situation was sensationalized," said another cronut fan.

The bakery put out a letter to fans on its Facebook page, saying, "We are deeply sorry for any disappointment that we may have caused you. Taking this opportunity, we have completely fortified our facilities with a full reconstruction and re-cementing, taking every issue seriously in an effort to provide an even more pristine environment for our guests."
