        jfood: Thanks I love them bothe but I was wondering if there are any over the border?

        1. re: nbermas

          jfood remembers a discussion about this bakery just past Mt Kisco Smoke House many months ago that jfood has not had the chance to visit.

          http://www.latulipedesserts.com/

          If you get there please report back.

          BTW - go to the smoke house for some very good novey lox and creamed herring.

          1. re: jfood

            I love La Tulipe, but I find their pastries extremely rich. worth a visit tho!

            1. re: i_eat_a_lot_of_ice_cream

              I agree about La Tulipe in Mt Kisco and L'Anjou behind Boston Chicken on 117 in Mt. Kisco has some excellent chocolate pastries.

            2. re: jfood

              jfood: That sounds wonderful a day of lox and chocolate just up my alley. I love kippered salmon, lox, bagels and to end with some good pastry I will be happy.

              1. re: nbermas

                my daughter trains at pro swing in mt kisco. our regular routine is a stop at la tulipe and at mt kisco smoke house. the smoked trout and smoked mussels are a must.

        2. If you are looking for a great bakery that serves high quality dessert and dark chocolate - try Perfect Endings Bakery in Armonk, NY. It is close to both Chappaqua, Mt. Kisco and Greenwich. I love their Chocolate Ganache tarts and cakes. If you are going for high quality - this is definitely the place for you.

          1. We really like La Tulipe - if you are looking for some serious chocolate, their Chocolate Extreme cake (more like ganache covered mousse) is terrific - and I think it comes in their individual size as well. I also really like their non-pareils. Enjoy!

              ooooooo ganache covered mousee,huh? I definitely have to give that a try! La Tulip also has great croissants.

              1. re: wincountrygirl

                Oh yeah, their croissants are to die for - and I even like their chocolate ones, which usually I find too sweet. And their macaroons - yum! And on a non-sweet note, their savory palmiers are great nibbles for parties. I'm getting hungry, good thing they aren't open right now!!!

            2. La Tulipe in Mt Kisco and L'Anjou behind Boston Chicken on 117 in Mt. Kisco are both great

              1. I always drive by Bijoux (or something with a B haha) Patisserie in Pleasantville... and I heard really great things about it when it first opened... how is it now?! It's right next to Michaels. Thanks!

                  Bisou. It's very, very good--and it needs more business. Stop next time and see what you think. We love their croissants, too, as well as pastry.

                2. The place next to Michaels went out of business I've heard...they had great almond croissants..alas...

                  L"Anjou behind boston kitchen is great..Patrice the baker actually made our wedding cake and it was awesome...

                  1. re: markp123

                    I like L'Anjou too, better than La Tulipe.

                    1. re: wincountrygirl

                      Now funny that I prefer La tulipe than L;'anjou. I am from France and La Tulipe hits it right on the nail with thier cakes by not making them to americanized and heavy. No pies there!!

                      1. re: Paris76

                        I love thecroissants at La Tulipe - I think those are better than L'Anjou and La Tulipe's cakes are more beautiful, but I think the flavor is better at L'Anjou on the cakes. Neither is heavy, and I hate pie!!!

                        1. re: Paris76

                          Have you tried La Tulipe's macarons and beignets? Perfection!

                          1. re: Paris76

                            Based on posts here I went to La Tulipe on Saturday morning to buy a cake for a dinner party I gave that night. They had NO cakes in the showcase - not one. The woman behind the counter said she could bring out anything to show me so I asked about the much lauded chocolate extreme cake........... they had NO chocolate cakes either. Saturday morning, 10 o'clock. All they had was fruit stuff. I went to L'Anjou.

                            1. re: wincountrygirl

                              Thats ridiculous! also, try Susan Lawrence in Chappaqua, surprisingly there cakes/pies are really good and beautiful to look at. I like l'Anjou a lot too though!

                              1. re: apples

                                Jennifer's in Mt Kisco has great cakes, and they will make anything you need/want. Sadly Jennifer passed away in April unexpectedly, but her husband is keeping the kitchen open. Try it!

                                1. re: apples

                                  The cake from L'Anjou was delicious. I had a similar incident at La Tulipe a couple of years ago. I went EARLY on a Saturday morning and they had no croissants. Now they had no cakes on display. Not a good way to run a business. I have been to Jennifer's and they have rainbow cookies with the marzipan layer..... I love those!!!
