As you walk through the aisles of Floral Palette, a home decor store in San Diego, you might stumble upon a hidden gem that is sure to delight your taste buds. Tucked away in the back corner of the store, is a French bakery called Parisien Gourmandise.
As soon as you step into the bakery, you’re greeted by the sweet aroma of freshly baked croissants and other French pastries. The space is small, with only a few tables and chairs, but it’s cozy and inviting. Parisien Gourmandise offers a variety of pastries, including croissants, pain au chocolat, eclairs, and macarons. The croissants are flaky and buttery, just as they should be, and the chocolate filling in the pain au chocolat is rich and decadent. The eclairs are light and airy, filled with a delicate pastry cream, and the macarons are colorful and perfectly chewy.
One of the best things about Parisien Gourmandise is that everything is made from scratch using high-quality ingredients. The bakery has become a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Some come for a quick breakfast or lunch, while others linger over a cup of coffee and a pastry. Whatever your reason for visiting, you won’t be disappointed. If you find yourself in San Diego, be sure to stop by Floral Palette and discover the hidden treasure that is Parisien Gourmandise. You’ll be transported to a little slice of Paris, right in the heart of Southern California.
On another note, if you’re anything like me, you know the struggle of finding the perfect pair of pants. They need to be comfortable, versatile, and of course, stylish. I recently wrote a review of these pants on my blog HERE, but I had to share with you again just how much I love them.
