An Instagram favourite, Beaucoup Bakery’s picturesque croissants and marble tabletops have featured in many posts. It’s more than a pretty lifestyle blogger go-to, however, those baked goods are amazing.
‘The chocolate almond croissant is the best – so decadent!’ says mom Kim The. Regular contributor Claudia Laroye says everything is delicious, not limiting herself, which is a good strategy when it comes to French pastry. They also have mini pastries, a good option to keep the small people out of your own flaky deliciousness.
Beaucoup Bakery founder Jackie Kai Ellis studied pastry making in Paris, so it’s no wonder those croissants taste authentic.
The only downside of this lovely bakery is its tiny size. Mom Joanne Denny has a solution though: ’Just across the street is a fairly new playground. Grab coffee and pastries to go and head over to the park, perfect!’
Personally, I have recurring dreams about their peanut butter sandwich cookies.
Time for a little French-inspired field trip?
