Le Bon Choix opens in the Paris end of the city
With luxury retailers such as Cartier, Louis Vuitton and Hermès settling in on Edward Street, it seems only fitting that the Paris end of the city gained its very own French patisserie.
With locations already in Ascot, Paddington and on Queen Street, Le Bon Choix has opened its second Brisbane City store in a quaint heritage building on Edward Street. The boulangerie and patisserie’s exterior exudes French charm, the street-side dining area shaded by wide umbrellas. Inside, the French touches continue, with pressed metal ceilings and mirrored panels contrasted by splashes of candy pink highlights. Le Bon Choix’s waitstaff all chime in with a friendly ‘bonjour’ as you walk in, ready to assist with you with all of your pastry desires.
All of Le Bon Choix’s breads, pastries and sweets are baked fresh each day at the store’s head-office bakery and delivered to the store – if you visit bright and early you may be lucky enough to find your croissant still warm. If croissants aren’t your pastry of choice, you can select from danishes, escargot, pane au chocolat, filled doughnuts and muffins. Le Bon Choix’s famed macarons are of course also available, as well as pre-packaged biscuits, cinnamon almonds and flourless chocolate tea cakes. For something a little more decadent head to the sweet counter, filled with vibrant and flamboyant delicacies such as the orange-dome Bamboleo, a trio of fruit flavours with mango mousse, mango, passionfruit and banana jelly.
If you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, the savoury counter at Le Bon Choix will not disappoint. The ever-changing sandwich counter is filled to the brim with baguettes, bagels, ciabatta and wraps, stuffed full of fresh salads and meats. Otherwise, opt for a classic quiche, flaky pie or indulgent croque-monsieur.
