A neighbourhood pâtisserie serving cakes worthy of royalty.
After months of churning rumours, the rising star of pâtisserie, Yann Couvreur, opened his very own pâtisserie. Having previously worked at luxury hotels le Burgundy, le Prince de Galles and Eden Rock Saint-Barthélémy, the 32-year-old pastry chef has come back down to earth and chosen his first address in Goncourt in the 10th.
With an immense window looking out onto the street, plants and exposed brick walls, the place is chic yet sober, leaving the pastries to do the talking. It’s the sort of place you can settle comfortably for a coffee, fresh orange juice and Viennoiserie (€9) or enjoy cakes you might imagine on Marie Antoinette’s afternoon tea table.
Every day, Couvreur serves up three pastry ‘specials’, like a Madagascan vanilla millefeuille or creamy meringue pavlova topped with red fruits. Be quick about it though, he only makes fifty per day of each, which you can devour at the standing counters. Look out for seasonal pastries in the window too, such as fraisiers and éclairs. Needless to say, the green and gold fox-adorned packaging is just as adorable as the cakes within.
