La Brioche is an authentic French bakery and patisserie in the centre of Tauranga.
They have been supplying authentically French delights since November last year.
Their baker is French, so he knows the French secrets. He makes all of their bread and pastries fresh daily.
They use organic flour for all of their sourdough breads, and owners Lionel and Janett Ehinger say the process makes their treats authentically French.
“We use a traditional, slow fermented French process that gives the bread a very specific taste and texture,” says Lionel. “It also makes it more friendly for people who have a gluten intolerance.”
Making a true croissant, like the ones you can buy in the best bakeries in France, is a difficult artisanal process. But La Brioche has got it perfected. The know-how of their baker makes their croissants unique in the Bay of Plenty, says Lionel.
Not only can you take your French treats home, if you are after a sit down experience, La Brioche has a wonderful French-inspired café area where you can enjoy a traditional French pastry alongside barista-made, locally roasted Fixation coffee.
