We came upon this fabulous store quite by accident while while home from a nearby restaurant. The building intrigued me and we decided to go in. WOW... it's laid out like a very very upscale boutique. All of the candy is in glass showcases, displayed...More

If Adam Wayda says it'll be mind-blowing, just ... trust him. The dude ate at every patisserie in Paris. (Which, by the way, it seems locals never do. I can't tell you how many locals commented on my desserts saying, "Oh, I wish I could...More

Brought my husband back a bag of caramels and he had them crushed by the end of the week! And he's not a big sweets person. Hands down best caramels either of us have ever had.

You must go here to have either the hot chocolate or the citrus tart in their tearoom. You will be amazed. Be sure to buy some caramels and/or some chocolates before you leave. This place is exceptional and not to be missed. Go!

We came right at opening 11AM and we're the first one there. Wanted to try the Paris Brest but it was not available that day so take note that it's not an everyday pastry served. So we did the sampling of fruit jellies, caramels, and...More
