Ooh la la! This French bakery in the heart of Orlando’s College Park district helmed by husband and wife team Stephanie and Philippe Cahagne is truly a little delight. You might recognize the Cahagne family name – Philippe is brother of Francois Cahagne who runs the fabulous French bakery Croissant Gourmet in Winter Park.
Philippe Cahagne, who owns Les Petits Pleasures with his wife Stephanie. They recently won best dessert at the Taste of College Park hosted by the Rotary Club of College Park
On College Park’s main thoroughfare Edgewater Drive, this little patisserie, with light lavender-colored walls, features many sweet pastry pleasures. The goods run the gamut: from buttery, flaky chocolate almond croissants, to fruit tarts topped with strawberries and blackberries, little morsels of sweet, slightly crunchy macarons, decadent slices of vanilla flan, coco rochers, moist moelleux apple sponge cakes, chocolate eclairs, Napoleons, and ever more.
The bakery, open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, also serves up some scrumptious hot sandwiches, quiches, and crepes for those wanting something more savory to go with the sweets. In the mornings, you can see the Cahagne family and staff at Les Petits Pleasures running about the kitchen area in their black aprons and head wraps, baking up their next creations.
When available, try their vol-au-vent, which means “windblown” in French, a flaky, delectable puff pastry stuffed with chicken, mushroom, Swiss cheese, and a creamy, rich béchamel sauce.
The Hawaii croque monsieur is a playful twist on the traditional grilled ham, Swiss cheese, and béchamel sandwich, topped with pineapple. You will fall in love with everything here, mon amis. It’s all about the little things in life.
