Cannelle Patisserie in Birmingham [DTW]

VTB Nov 3, 2013 08:29 AM

Many of the girls who traveled to Paris when they were in Junior High now live in Birmingham, so it makes sense that there are some good French bakeries in the area.  Le Petit Prince, for instance.  Earlier this year another one popped up in a very easy to miss spot, and this one is well worth a stop if you're anywhere in the area, which is across the train tracks and Maple from, i.e. diagonal to, Big Rock (say, if you are at Whole Foods, Troy)---https://m.facebook.com/friends/center... offer are fresh large and small baguettes, all manner of flaky pastries with fruit or chocolate or almond paste or creams, as well as fine espresso, and also salads/sandwiches which I've not thought to try.  A worthy and cute (even though stuck between a Jet's pizza and the train tracks) addition to the competitive area.

    Do you know the connection with the now-closed Cannella Patisserie? I have gotten their pastries at the Guardian Building café downtown, and I agree, they're very good.

      Hi, I think it is the same. Their pastries/breads are sold in a few area places, though I believe this currently is their only wholly owned point of sale, if that's the right technical term :-)

      i had one of their 'baguettes' at RO farmers market. maybe their pastries are better, but the baguette was practically white bread in loaf form.

      another try, another time...
