Galettes des Rois

We are making a lot of Galettes des Rois—king cake. This is the French version, which people share to celebrate Epiphany (January 6th, the Twelfth day of Christmas). The Galette des Rois contains a fève, a little porcelain toy, and comes with a paper crown. We make these in three different sizes: for six, eight, or ten people. The idea is that after the cake is cut into pieces, the person who finds the fève becomes king for the day and gets to buy the next Galette des Rois. Our Galettes des Rois are filled with frangipane (almond) cream, as is traditional. We will be making these for the whole month of January.

We also have a smaller, two-serving version without the fève or crown.

The store is closed today, Friday, January 8, 2021. The chef is exhausted. We should be open again tomorrow.

New Year’s Schedule, 2020-2021

We are open today, December 30, 2020, but we have only macarons to sell and nothing else—no small cakes, no croissants. The chef is working on orders today.

Tomorrow, December 31, New Year’s Eve, we will have croissants and petits gateaux (small cakes) and we will be open for people to pick up their cake and galette orders.

Friday and Saturday, January 1-2, 2021, we will be closed.

We will be open again on Sunday, January 3 and then we will return to our usual schedule (closed Mondays and Tuesdays, open Wednesday through Sunday).

Bûche de Noël for New Year’s

If you would like to order a Bûche de Noël for New Year’s eve, please call as soon as possible. It takes three days to make one.

Also, we will be open on Sunday, December 27.

Holiday Schedule, 2020

Today is Christmas day. We’re closed today. Sorry.

The chef has spent the whole day sleeping after getting maybe two to five hours of sleep every day for the past week.

We will take off Saturday, December 26 as well. We have nothing in the store and we need to build up some stock again. We expect to open again on Sunday, December 27. Then, we will probably be closed again on Monday and Tuesday (December 28 and 29). Then, we will be open again on Wednesday, December 30. I don’t think we’ve made a decision yet about what to do New Year’s eve.
