Last week I got a chance to stop by French bakery Vanille Patisserie for a dessert tasting…

The gourmet French pastry shop located in Chicago is ran by husband wife duo Dimitri and Keli Fayard.


Keli Fayard

Walking into the pastry shop, I automatically knew I was going to be in love!  I tried so many variety of desserts that it didn’t take me long to lose track of what was my favorite!


As you can see from the picture below each dessert is handmade daily by staff daily with such attention to detail I really don’t know how they do it!


While all the desserts were excellent, I was especially in love with the Macarons! I had been dying to try them so I was overly excited when I realized that Vanille Patisserie made them… I may just move from cupcakes to Macarons!!


Macarons anyone?


Yummy, yummy...


See the detail, those gold pieces are actually 24k gold pieces...



They even sell specialty tea and coffee!



All of these samples for me?? What's a girl to

If you are in the mood for some great desserts,  I definitely recommend you try Vanille Patisserie
