    "Cerise sur le gateau " were taking orders for Christmas, I know. They were offering some for degustation (may be still offer) last weekend. Tasty!

    I see that "Fous desserts" also offering "Buche de Noel" tasting.

        -the kem coba logs were very attractive on my visit last weekend, and might appeal to varied age group, serves 8; 22$ each
        -there was an article in paper last weekend on some of the best logs and although in french I will post it as has some photos of artisanal logs. The ones at Cerise sur le gateau are rectangular in shape, you can see one in the 4 photos at top of article

          Thanks for the link, has anyone been to any of those 4 places listed?
          I was thinking Kem Coba or Havre aux Glaces as well.

            I don't know about their bûches, but Cerise sur le gâteau and Fous Desserts pastries are always good. Les Givrés pastries are good too but less exceptional maybe. I really really don't like CRémy and never understand why it's in these kind of lists.

            Other places to check :
            - Pâtisserie Rhubarbe. had one last year and it was pretty amazing. 2 new flavors this year : http://patisserierhubarbe.com/post/13...
            - La maison du macaron. Last pastries I've tried there were all pretty good, which was not the case when they opened. The bûches looks great : http://lamaisondumacaron.com/pages/no...
            - Boutique Point G

          A follow-up question. Does anyone know of a place that makes a good Buche de Noel with cake and icecream filling?

            I ordered a buche from Fous, I didn't have the opportunity to sample it so here's hoping everyone enjoys it. I'll give you my feedback after the weekend. Thanks for the suggestion.

              Way too late to be useful for ios94, but others might be still looking: Chocolat Privilège at Marche Atwater has buches.
