Must try: Croissants, Gâteau Breton
I was so excited to stumble on a brand new Cannelle Patisserie when I was wandering around Long Island City recently.
Cannelle Patisserie with its original location in East Elmhusrt is perhaps one of best bakeries in Queens.
This venture was brought to fruition by Jean Claude Perennou and Gnanasampanthan Sabaratratnam – both Ex- Waldorf Astoria pastry chefs.
Cannelle Patisserie offers Manhattan quality baked goods at super affordable prices. The display cases are a riot of colors, textures and artful creations such as, napoleons, éclairs, profiteroles, all kinds of baked pastries and cookies. They also offer a range of fresh baked breads, quiches, tarts and so on. Their crowning glory is their super flaky croissants, gâteau Breton, Saint Honoré and Paris-Brest
I am thrilled that they have expanded from their Elmhurst spot and look forward to seeing much more of them.
