Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie is probably one of the sweetest things that has happened to the Burnaby Heights neighbourhood in, well… a while!
The beautiful little chocolate and pastry shop is located at 4712 East Hastings just past Willingdon Avenue, and since opening last Spring it’s quickly gained a buzz for its amazing hand crafted truffles and cakes, not to mention the double baked maple and pecan croissants (which we finally got to try — yum).
Run by husband and wife team Christophe and Jess Bonzon, we were recently invited to come to their shop to enjoy a sample of their latest seasonal offerings.
Each one is uniquely crafted by Christophe himself, and after seeing these photos — we’re sure you’ll want to make your way to his shop soon to indulge.
