As you step in to L’Epi de Ble, the scent of freshly made croissants and friendly “Bonjours” transport you to a small café in the middle of Paris.
But, you’re actually in North Main.
The bakery is overflowing with fresh tarts, macaroons, and baguettes. The owners are incredibly lovely and hardworking people, they bring a French flare to the North Main communities!
After having an unsuccessful experience making my own macaroons, I was hesitant to try them. They did look incredible, though.
So, I caved.
I almost wish I hadn’t tried one, because now, I’m hooked!
On a recent trip to Montreal, I searched for a macaroon that was on par with the ones at L’Epi de Ble and came up short!
There’s no need to make a trip to Quebec or travel across the ocean to France when there is a place like L’Epi de Ble right here in Winnipeg!
Head over for a morning croissant or a sugar-coated afternoon treat!
