We usually visit their stand in the Saturday market during summer. Everything is so beautiful and tasty and they sell out fast, so you should go there early. My favourites are their cannelés de bordeaux and tarte aux framboises. They are worth the ferry ride from Vanvouver :-)

These guys are fantastic. Had some of the best canelles outside of Paris. My macaroon snob family gave theirs 5-stars across the board. Mushroom quiche was excellent, and pear almond tart was out of this world. Found them at the Sat am Mkt, but the French wife/husband team were delightful. Worth every calorie.

Incredible!! Huge piece of chocolate tart at the Salt Spring Market. Brigitte is proper French. So I trusted that the tart would not disappoint.

So good! All hand made there. Typical french patisserie. The vanille cannelle is taking you to France!

I never had Canele before, and so when I saw that they had them I was intrigued and thought I'd try a couple. I remember wishing that I had picked up more! Additionally, I have always found Macarons to be over-rated and at best "higher quality" oreos, but this wonderful placed proved me wrong and has helped me respect the... More

How is it that the best French pastries were found in a parking lot opposite a pub? I don't know but I do know that I consumed a lot of calories eating the best croissants, pear tart and tomato cheese olive tarts found outside of France. The pastry on the tarts were incredibly crisp, buttery and light and the croissants... More

Amazing French pastries that are authentic and delicious. Brigitte and Bruno have brought a small piece of France to Salt Spring Island and raised the bar for all things pastry.

Rendezvous French Patisserie has fresh Cannelés de Bordeaux! They are made fresh daily by Brigit who comes from that area of France; and she has the heavy French accent to prove it. The Rendezvous French Patisserie is a tiny spot, located close to Ganges, directly across from Moby's Pub. Cannelés are a vanilla & rum custard concoction; Not like anything... More

This is just down the hill from the Hastings House, so it very convenient for picking up a (sweet) snack during the day if you're staying there. Coming in here is like travelling to a small bakery in France, which is not surprising because the owners are (I think) French. Everything I had here was excellent. Their coffee was good... More
