Liberté, a pâtisserie boulangerie by Benoît Castel (ex-Le Grand Épicerie a.k.a. my favorite food hall in Paris), opened two months ago in the Canal St. Martin neighborhood. With its lofted ceiling, unpolished cement walls, sleek marble counter, and completely open kitchen, Liberté is refreshingly different from the typical French bakery. Two other pleasant surprises include the relatively low prices and super friendly store staff, who carry lots of smiles and are happy to explain the details of each pastry. Double thumbs up.

On another note, lovely floor tiles.

Lintzer Framboise (€4), or raspberry lintzer, is cinnamon-spiced sweet pastry dough topped with raspberry cream. Not an immediate favorite, but it did bring me back to the good old schools days at Ferrandi, particular to this class when we made a Lintzer Torte.

Clafoutis Mangue Framboise (€3.20), mango raspberry clafoutis, delicious when heated warm.

Cheesecake (€4.20), is a cheesecake. It’s good.

Madeleine au Chocolat (€0.90), not particularly memorable.

Some kind of chocolate bread (€2) whose name escapes me…Dense, chocolate-y but not to sweet. Like.

I enjoyed what I saw and tasted from Liberté. It’s not necessarily a place I’d trek across town for, but will definitely drop by again when in the Canal St. Martin neighborhood.

  1. I like the interiors! I also really like the mini ruffled sable that he uses as his brand signature. Might steal that!

  2. Yes the interior is very stylish indeed, different from the typical French bakery. Ditto on the mini sable…trop mignon :)
