The macarons were just okay and pretty expensive for what you get. I liked the pistachio, the earl grey, and the rosewater ones. Mu family did not really like the ones they tried. Also, parking was terrible... Side streets and curbs were full.More

Short of being actually in France, this is the real deal on French pastries. Scrummy, yummy, outrageously good. They even spoke to me initially in French. The lovely croissant with ham and cheese even had bechamel sauce in it. The macarons, especially the blackcurrant falvoured...More

This place is the real deal. Fresh flaky homemade croissants. baguettes that are crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Homemade caneles (rum and egg pastry). Get there early as things run out.

Each time I pass this bakery, I swoon. Powerless against the vision of the grand assortment of macaroons, I'm drawn inside. This time, I also bought an individual lemon meringue tart...and was delighted to NOT share this with anyone! Lovely place!

There were quite a few different options to choose from which was a pleasant surprise! I chose the macaroon with raspberries in it and it was amazing. The staff were very friendly. I hope to get back to try the buckwheat crepes.

Description
French-owned and operated pastry shop and crepe cafe in Vancouver.
We are passionate about food and even more passionate about sharing it with family, friends, strangers... Anybody really as long as you have a sweet tooth and appreciate quality products. David is a self-taught Chef and can work hours on recipes to offer some of the most authentic and tasty French pastries in Vancouver. We believe that food is not just a basic necessity, it is also a pleasure and we intend to make people happy with our pastries. We can spend hours perfecting recipes so our creations are a delight to your 5 senses: they look pretty, they smell nice, they melt in your mouth, they taste good and each one of them has a distinctive sound when you take the first bite... Catherine and the team of baristas strive to provide customer service as delightful as the pastries, in French and in English!
