“Don’t just stand there with your Eiffel Tower smile. Tell me you love me and tell me in French!”
– Jared Kintz
With la-la-love day fast approaching, I thought I would spotlight a petite French bakery located in the heart of Halifax (cause what is more romantic then delicious French pastry!). Le French Fix Patisserie is the brain child of Geoffroy Chevallier, a pastry chef born just outside of Paris. His years of experience have made him an expert in Parisian pastries and he is currently taking Haligonians by storm.
French Fix is located on the corner of Prince street and Argyle street. It is quaint, just four tables but the coffee is strong and the display case is teeming with the most lovely of French pastries. There are several flavors of macarons to choose from, salted caramel tarts, croissants and pain au chocolats, just to name a few of delicacies they offer. You can watch the chef work his magic in an open kitchen and the decor is inviting and minimalistic, just the way I like it. They do croque monsieur sandwiches once a week and have started selling take and bake croissants…TAKE AND BAKE CROISSANTS (!!!!)
Last week my sister and I enjoyed a lazy afternoon sipping macchiatos and devouring pain au chocolats that rivalled the ones we had eaten together in Paris. I am told they will be offering pastry classes in the near future. Oh la-la, sign me up!
You can find hours of operation and pictures of their butter laden masterpieces here- https://www.facebook.com/pages/Le-French-Fix-P%C3%A2tisserie/196033110431832?ref=ts&fref=ts
Don’t just take my word for it, check it out and keep it local!
