First Taste of Mon Paris Pâtisserie

With it’s focus on exquisite French pastries with a contemporary twist, Parisian-trained Chef Elena Krasnova has recently opened her first standalone shop in Burnaby’s Metrotown neighborhood.

Complete with a 600 square foot open-concept kitchen, the clean and simple design of Mon Paris Pâtisserie houses an enchanting café with intimate bistro-style seating (patio space coming in Spring). The menu offers premium Republica Coffee Roasters beverages, specialty tea and other drinks complimenting her array of homemade pasty, gourmet lunch options and – of course – premium Cacao Barry chocolate confections.

Among many signature creations, Chef Elena will showcase a modern take on classic French desserts like the ‘Opera’ (intense coffee flavours melded with moist dark chocolate mousse) featuring items available for purchase in-store and through pre order.

Chef Krasnova trained at the famed Ferrandie Ecole de Gastronomie in Paris, and is pleased to bring a quintessential Parisian experience to guests who can expect to enjoy, made with the best local and international ingredients. Driven by quality and visual appeal, Chef Krasnova creates imaginative works of texture and flavour in all her offerings.

Mon Paris Pâtisserie will be open Tuesday to Friday from 8am to 6pm and on Saturday from 8am to 5pm. Mon Paris is located a few steps away from Metrotown at 4396 Beresford Street in Burnaby.
