Food & Wine – Douceur de France

Douceur de France (meaning “sweets of France”) is a pastry shop and café owned by Chef Luc Beaudet.  A native of the Poitou region in the West of France, Beaudet has earned a reputation in the area for baking the most authentic French pastries in town. 

During our visit to the shop, everything from the ambiance to every scrumptious bite of our pastry (and the French being spoken behind the counter!) was quite reminiscent of time spent in France.  Chef Beaudet shares, “We keep everything simple and French.  You won’t find carrot cake or red velvet cake in our case, because they aren’t traditionally French desserts.”  Beaudet says that his crème brûlée is a customer favorite, but upon our visit, we also noticed that at only mid-day, there wasn’t an éclair to be found. 

Christmas selections include Yule Logs beautifully decorated and available in several flavors, meringue Santas and petit fours in decorated boxes.   

At Douceur, customers can choose from individual sized portions or larger, or full-sized cake options which can be taken to-go or enjoyed in house.

 
They also have a small restaurant that serves delicious French style breakfast and lunches and of course you can get individual portions of many of their great cakes and pasteries to go along with your meal or to take home.  Breakfast Menu    Lunch Menu
