– Chef Thierry’s Annual Beignet Festival Returns For Mardi Gras –
Get in the spirit of Mardi Gras and do as they do in the French Quarter of New Orleans with sips of espresso and icing sugar-dusted beignets at Thierry Cafe. Maitre Chocolatier and Patissier Chef Thierry Busset takes a treasured family recipe and adds his artisanal spin to offer the traditional donut-like delights.
Offered from February 15th to March 15th only, these warm, airy French pastries are made a la minute, daily from 11 am onwards. Choose between house-made accompaniments of chocolate, raspberry or caramel sauces for a delicious match made in heaven. Perfect for sharing, these delights are $10.75 for six pieces.
“Celebrating Fetes des Beignets has always been a family tradition and brings back so many fond memories of my mother making her special recipe during this time of year,” says Chef Thierry. “Our guests truly look forward to dropping by the cafe to enjoy these seasonal treats, or picking up an order as a take-away.”
Thierry Cafe is located at 1059 Alberni Street and is open from 7 am to midnight on weekdays and 8 am to midnight on weekends.
