Best Bakery Orange County 2013 - Au Cœur de Paris Bakery
You shouldn't be surprised to learn the county's best French bakeries are in a cluster in Little Saigon to support a community that's as picky about their baguettes, croissants and macarons as any arrondissement in Paris. And that's the case with Au Cœur de Paris Bakery, also known as Le Versailles. It supplies crisp-crusted baguettes to many top restaurants and bánh mì shops in Little Saigon that can't bake bread as perfectly. The macarons are as ethereally crisp and flavorful as any you'll find at Ladurée in the City of Lights. And the almond croissants are an indulgent addiction, as are other flaky-pastry treats such as the savory, meatball-filled pâté chaud.
