Recommended by hotel staff, I visited this gem and became a repeat customer during my week in France, er Vancouver. Their eclair's aux chocolate, tartelettes, and mousse are wonderful. The real thing, and freshly made, and the staff we're very friendly too. First rate.

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!
