La Baguette de Normandy
La Baguette de Normandy transports locals and visitors alike to the streets of Paris without leaving town. The charming cafe and bakery is filled with the authentic flavors of France expertly created by Master Chef Michael Dupont. The certified baker and chocolatier brought his amazing culinary skills, honed on the coast of Normandy, to Parker and the community couldn't be happier.
Chef Dupont offers all the traditional favorites of his homeland including croissants, baguettes, and a variety of tasty quiches. You might want to try one of his signature crepes for something really special or treat yourself to an artisan omelet for breakfast. La Baguette de Normandy's espresso coffee is out of this world and is the perfect complement to its exquisite pastries.
Posh Cakes has been delighting the neighborhood since 2005 with its freshly-baked cupcakes and made-to-order cannolis. The popular bakery is also the ideal choice for custom wedding or birthday cakes. The award-winning owner, Hilary Hough, makes everything from scratch adding her own pizzazz to every delicious recipe. Special request cookie orders for any occasion are always welcome.
Posh Cakes is the area's holiday dessert headquarters and your celebration won't be complete without one of its bourbon pecan pies.
