Description: The story of Christophe Artisan Chocolatier-Patissier is, above all else, a story of love. A story that, at its core, is about one man's love for sharing his creations with others and his dedication to his French origins. Christophe Paume is the rarest of artisans, a third-generation French chocolatier, who grew up in his father's patisserie in Toulouse, France. Alongside his father, he learned to create exquisite French pastry, the highest quality chocolates, succulent gelato, and every type of bread imaginable. After attending the CFA de Muret, Christophe moved to Paris and worked at Entremet de France, refining his hand-painted, one-of-a-kind creations of dark,white, and milk chocolate ganache and chocolate truffles. For the next ten years, he continued to work in the family business and traveled to Montreal to work at Patisserie de Gascogne. He also achieved his Brevet de Maitrise, Master in Pastry. While it was his passion for fine chocolate that brought him to the United States, it was love that kept him here. In 2009, he married Carly, and they moved to Charleston SC and formed Christophe Artisan Chocolatier-Patissier.

Everything tastes as good as it looks, and everything looks delicious and beautiful. This is the art of pastries and chocolate, prepared with perfect techique and obvious care and passion. Do not take it out, sit down with a cup of fresh French Press coffee (made while you wait) and enjoy any of Christophe's delicious offerings. Then, only then, get a baguette sandwich or other to go and enjoy later...

Very good pastries, baguettes, and french press coffee made to order. Limited selection. Almond croissant was very very good but not outstanding. Eclair we had was chocolate filled not custard filled. Coffee was strong and very good made to order. Service was excellent. Two coffees and three pastries cost $20. People seem to like the to go baguette sandwiches.

We went for a quick snack, and they have amazing desserts! Everything looked amazing. We had a piece of chocolate cake that was very good. The buttercream icing was some of the best I have ever had. Definitely recommend.
