This small bakery is set into a cozy space, with sophisticated yet simple décor. There are funky lamps hanging from the ceiling, tasteful frames adorning the walls, and a huge, brightly lit display case taking center stage.
You can carry-out a wide selection of pastries, or dine in at one of the tables and chairs set along the window. Either way, you will enjoy personable service and delicious dessert.
Vanille Patisserie offers a range of pastries. There are croissants and petit fours, as well as tarts of every flavor. Some of these include the Tarte Vanille, Tarte Banane and Tarte Citron. There are also brownies, tiramisu and interesting-sounding cakes (try the Sicilia, which is pistachio cream, cinnamon mousse and vanilla nut sponge, or the Carapoire, which is chocolate cake, caramel mousse, pears bavaroise and diced pears.)
