“Extra fins!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2014

I was visiting friends in La Garenne. AND of course we HAD to go to le Bernardé for beautiful chocolates - les pavées extra fins. You choose your box size (set price for each) then you can ask for the flavors of the squares that you like. Dark/Milk/Mixed in all kinds of "parfums". And that is just one of the choices. The boutique is a marvel of confections made right there. And it's a beautiful place - really remarkable. And they have ONE type of cake each week, only on Saturdays. So visitors - come to La Garenne Colombes on a Saturday morning - the market is WONDERFUL. And Le Bernardé is "juste en face". NTBM. Plus they do have classes Saturday afternoons (except in the heat of the summer!)

“Food Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

I had the good fortune to come on a day they had an "open house." This allowed for a tour of the kitchen and short talk with chef Nicholas while he demonstrated his craft.

It was like watching a master painter. What fantastic skill!

A couple of words for the traveler..... this is not your typical Parisienne pastry shop. Don't go expecting croissants and coffee. It is a delightful bakery of high quality petite cakes and confections.

A little had to find - but worth the effort. 10 out of 10.
