This little patisserie is tucked away in a row of businesses just off Carling Avenue in Kanata North, which is fortunately not far from our house. Actually, maybe not quite far enough...
If you want authentic French pastries that are just as good as anything you'll find on a street in Paris, get to this place as soon as you can. Sooner, even.
The Kouign-Amann, for which the bakery is named, is a traditional pastry from Britanny that will have you looking for excuses to drive down Carling. Some of the other offerings look almost too beautiful to be ruined by a fork, although I'd be happy to be the spoilsport that would do it. Or maybe just skip the fork and use my teeth.
Françoise and Jeff have brought a real culinary treasure to Kanata. The rest of Ottawa should be so lucky.
