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

        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!!

          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!!!

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

              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.

                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!

                  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!

                    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!!!

            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.

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

                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!

                    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!!!

                  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.

                        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.

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

                            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.
