Tournayre Patisserie is closed

I called today to check out what's available and was told that the store has been sold and is now under new management. The store will be closed for the next few weeks for renovation and here is the link for the new store:

      Is that for sure? I know the owners and was there only last weekend. They never mentioned anything to me. I really hope it isn't true because that place is the BEST!

        I spoke with one of the new owners yesterday, she said they didnt announce it before they took over and nobody knew before hand. I did ask if Tournayre has moved to another place but didnt get an answer. If anybody knows where Tournayre has moved to (if it is still in business), please keep us updated.

      Say it ain't so! Aside from their gorgeous assortment of pastries and such, they were lovely people (unlike the folks over at Rahier).

      Konditor, eh? I must confess that I'm very interested in what they will offer in the way of Viennese pastries.

        I don't see why mourning Tournayre means dissing Rahier. Whether you like the people who serve you there or not (and I've never had a problem, apart from the crowds), their cakes and pastries are first-rate.

          I've been less than thrilled with Rahier's service too. Rather arrogant and indifferent, especially when I'm trying to ask a question. I'd rather give my money to businesses that are pleasant. Yes, Rahier's offerings are good, but it's not worth my trouble, with the attitude, the crowds and the parking hassles.

            Add me to the critics of Rahier so-called 'customer service'. But in fairness, the quality of their goods is good.

              Add me also. The sales people at Rahier always make you realize how much you've put them out when you ask a question.
