They cater to people who are holding events and need a pièce montée, or delicate desserts and savory bites for a party, or snacks for the kids after school, or just for a little “moment gourmand”. Kosher and oriental delights are waiting to be tasted and appreciated.
And your lactose free pastry dreams are just a short metro ride away. Macarons, croissants, pastries, pizzas and petit fours salés, tartelettes, pies, french cookies and oriental cookies, cakes and cream cakes…oh and did I say CREAM CAKES!?! Sink your teeth into pain-free deliciousnes.
You are welcome.
