There’s a new cream puff haven in the city of lights.
The ground floor of Odette is where you order your cream puffs and bevvies. If you choose to eat them there, you can pop a squat on the 1st floor à la française where they will bring you your cream puffs on the most precious vintage trays.
The decoration is very simple and elegant, with very traditional French touches: read leather chairs and round tables with bench seating along the wall. The floors are black and white checkers. So lovely. So quaint.
The cream puffs are assorted so nicely, with all of the traditional flavors. They are so scrumptious and full of flavor. Much to my surprise they are quite filling for being so petit and dainty. Haleigh and I did go choux-crazy and decided to make our way to cream puff heaven, trying every flavor that Odette had to offer. I don’t want to tell the flavors because I think they are so fun to guess.
Odette is the owner’s, Frédéric, grandmother. These choux à la crème are her traditional recipe. I think that is so sweet.
