The French are known for being good at many things. Namely, their fabulous range of high-end fashion, their potent fromage and of course, their pastries! These guys are a classy bunch indeed, oozing elegance and grandeur from every angle of their being. Luckily, they’ve brought some of that goodness over to Perth so we can enjoy their authentic cakes and bakes and feel like we’re in Paris all over again.
