...THAT JE NE SAIS QUOI
Le Petit Gourmet is a traditional French patisserie located in Gràcia. Its owners, Alex Barreau and Marine Genieys, are originally from France and are passionate about bringing a little bit of their culture to Barcelona. “We want to offer something to eat at any time of the day, from breakfast to dinner, and something that reminds us of living in the south of France—such as sablés and flans,” said Barreau. The patisserie’s kitchen is on display, so you can see the couple making the pastries from scratch. From doughy croissants and crispy macarons to sweet wine and traditional ham and cheese, all of the pastries and deli products available have something in common: they are typically found in south-west France. Le Petit Gourmet currently does not have many tables and chairs inside and is primarily a take-away spot, so it’s the perfect place for a morning snack on your way to work or an evening treat after a long day.
