(Gatineau, Canada) • Pastries prepared by artists! A must try when you are in the area.
Ambiance: The store is not too big and it has a few tables. It smelled very good so it made hard for me to chose what to get. There is a French feel environment. Besides the sweets, they also have sandwiches and savory food. You order and pay at the counter.
Service: Nothing outstanding but the lady serving us was polite although a bit too stern, a smile would have been nice for sure. She was though quick getting our order, processing our payment and packaging our sweets.
Cleanliness: The floor, counter and display seemed clean.
Food wait time: Pretty fast as there was nobody else in front of us.
Food presentation: It looked tasty and very soft.
Portion: Not very big the one I picked but it was enough.
Taste: I got this strawberry shortcake like sweet and it was delicious! Very light, not too sweet, no artificial taste and the filling tasted like homemade.
