Thierry Busset's New Place is Open (Review)

talker32 | Aug 10, 201102:28 PM     23

Thierry Busset is a very well known pastry chef (West, Cin Cin) who has recently opened a very high end Chocolaterie and Pattiserie on Alberni Street (Between Burrard and Thurlow). I happened to be walking by today and they opened the door and said we are open for business (soft launch).

My impressions:

Overall this place is impressive. The coffee was excellent (had both an espresso and an Americano. The croissant was very good (second only to the croissants at the Bakery on Granville Island). I had a salami sandwich with cheese and pesto on a baguette for lunch. Great sandwich the only problem was that they used mild orange cheddar (I would have expected something white and aged).

I also bought some Macaroons for the office which were amazing.

This place will be a popular fixture in town... let me know what you think of it...
