There's also a raspberry pie.
And Baby Trops.
A world renowned French bakery is on its way to Texas. La Tarte Tropézienne will bring its famous pastries, quiches and sandwiches to downtown Dallas this fall.
The bakery has chosen a location right under The Joule hotel at 1604 Main Street as its very first outside of France — a prime power spot for picking up a croissant on the way to work.
The French bakery is known for its tarte tropezienne, or “La Tarte de Saint-Tropez,” which is a cream-filled brioche bun sprinkled with grains of sugar. Created in 1955 by Saint-Tropez patisserie owner Alexandre Micka, the dessert was later named by actress Bridget Bardot while she was filming in the town.
At the shop, you can purchase a large tarte for four, six, or eight to 10 people, or an individual tart. There’s also a raspberry flavored one, and other pastries like donuts, fritters, eclairs, fruit tarts and more.
For sandwiches and quiches, there’s the classic Quiche Lorraine, Croque Monsieur and ham sandwich. They’ve also got all sorts of breads — baguettes, seigle and moisson to purchase and carry around like a true Frenchman or woman.
Look out for the new spot next to The Joule and stay updated on the opening of La Tarte Tropézienne on the bakery’s Facebook page.
