As a local, C'est La Vie is where I shop for delicious cakes, pies and French pastries. Over the years I have purchased dozens of items from this wonderful French bakery which, in my opinion, is on par with any French pastry shop in a big city. The shop accepts phone orders, a plus since it spares me two visits to often overcrowded New Hope. I especially like the fruit tart with a shell glazed with chocolate and the Christmas log or buche Noel in the original flavor. The only negative is the parking situation in the rear (the tiny shop is at the end of a small alley, and the majority of the parking spaces are owned by another shop in the front of the alley). Invariably, when you park your car to pick up your cake, you hear the pained voice of the owner of the front shop asking you if you "will be long?" Needless to say, this shop owner has lost a customer long ago. If you are picking up a cake, avoid the nagging voice of this person by parking near the side wall and close to the front of C'est La Vie. In my opinion, this outstanding pastry shop is one of New Hope's star attractions!
