The holiday season just keeps getting sweeter, as another dessert spot unlocks its doors to the public. Found in our favorite neck of the woods, SoCo Collection, you can thank Master Pastry Chef Stéphane Tréand for gracing patrons with a high-end confectionery retailer and pastry school all rolled into one, multi-purpose space.
Previously located in San Clemente, his school has relocated to the accessible grounds off the 405 freeway. Classic and modern French pastries are also available for purchase at this sugary spot, which opened on November 19.
Operating hours are daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information on classes offered, you can click on this link. We recommend the purple macarons (and everything made with chocolate).
ST Patisserie Chocolat is located at 3321 Hyland Ave, Costa Mesa, (714) 825-0180; www.stephanetreand.com.
