Eclair De Lune--new bakery in Calgary

Someone already mentioned this place in a chocolate string, but I wanted to second his suggestion to check this new bakery out. I stopped in a couple of days ago and had an excellent spinach turnover (would have been even better if I had waited to get home and warm it up), a neat dessert called a "Conversation," almond cream and raspberry puree in a puff-pastry shell, and one of the eponymous eclairs, not quite as good as the "Conversation" but still tasty. I didn't sample the other things on offer: croissants, other flavors of turnovers, black forest cake, many other desserts. They've been around about four mos., and the owner said he's a former engineering post-doc at the U of C. He chucked in his pocket protector in order to follow his culinary dreams.

Their address: 1049 40th Ave. NW
