Restaurant Review - Jean-Marc Chatellier's French Bakery

Jean-Marc Chatellier's French Bakery is tucked away in Millvale - a quaint Pittsburgh neighborhood off of Rt. 28. The neighborhood of Millvale always strikes me a little place that could have once been the backdrop to a Norman Rockwell painting. Jean-Marc Chatellier French Bakery may not look like much from the outside, but after one visit, I quickly discovered the the beauty is found within.

I stopped into this bakery with the intention of picking up a little something for dessert to bring to my brothers house. The "little something" turned into a sampling of nearly everything they have to offer. A temping array of pastries, cakes, pies, breads and truffles are a treat for your eyes, and the intoxicating aroma of freshly baked sweetness, a delight for your nose. I scanned the display case a dozen times over, only breaking for a moment to wipe off the drool. Scads of individual sized delicacies made for a most difficult decision.

In the end I selected the chocolate truffle tart, the chocolate run pecan tart, towering black forest cake, and cappuccino tiramisu cake. I avoided the oh-so-temping strudels, danishes, cream pies, and fruit tarts to appease my sister-in-law; whose house I was going to the evening. (She s
hy's away from any sort of "cooked fruit" no matter how delicious it may be... weirdo.)



Jean-Marc Chatellier's also had a few impressive wedding cakes on display. Intricately decorated with frosting and fondant, and traditionally layered, these cakes looked more like works of art than something you would cut apart and eat. 

Whether you need a cure for a sweet tooth, or a fancy treat for a special occasion, this little bakery is sure do the trick.
