It has now become tradition for us - anytime we're visiting New Hope, we make a stop at C'est la Vie where an array of jewel-like pastries, pies, cakes & French breads continue to tempt. This time it was the Pear Frangipani that beckoned...so delicious!...More

This is one of the best kept secrets in the region. The pastries and breads are amazingly good. The only problem for me is that it's not close enough for regular visits.

I have been to France a few times and this place does not come close to what they offer there. Everything looks a lot better than it tastes. No lightness. No flakiness. Hardly any goat cheese in the tart I ordered. What gives?

Stashed away in a little side street this uniquely French pastry shop is a treat. Unique variety of delicious fresh homemade pastries and breads that will blow you away. This place is the real deal and the pastries are rivaled only by our actual travels...More
