Say hello to La Vie En Rose Patisserie! Located in the heart of George Town, keep your eyes peeled for its cotton candy storefront that sits at the corner of a row of shophouses. Then step into its minimal and cosy space where a wonderland of desserts await you.
From buttery croissants and fluffy beignets to crumbly tarts, feast your eyes on all their amazing pastries and desserts that are freshly made daily. Just the sight of their yummy bakes is enough to make you drool - but from the stream of customers that pour into the bakery all day, there's no doubt they taste just as good as they look ? So copping a box (or two) of pastries before hitting the road might be a good idea.
On top of all these delicious bakes, what separates the patisserie apart from most bakeries is that they're the first madeleine specialist in Malaysia. That're right! If you're a huge fan of the soft and buttery traditional French cake, then they'll definitely hit the spot for you. And get this - they go a step further by making towers out of the madeleines. Perfect for all sorts of occasions - birthdays, weddings, baby showers - you can customize them however you like ?
With this halal French patisserie in mind, your next trip to Penang is about to get a whole lot sweeter ?
