"What are you ?" is a question we are frequently asked. "Are you a bakery, a café, a restaurant, a gift shop, a patisserie, a delicatessen, a cake shop, a wine bar, a bistro…?"


At the heart of what we do is sharing Paris with you. Paris, the City of Lights, the City of Love; a city we love, a city we hail from, a city that has so much to offer...


It all starts with the food we represent through different dining experiences to enjoy throughout your day. 


Because a French experience begins with the best Croissant, our viennoiseries and patisseries are made fresh by hand, every morning in our Mercer Island kitchen with no compromise or convenient shortcuts: taste the difference! Yes, it occasionally might happen that we run out of particular items; our limited quantities are a key part of our commitment to deliver to you the highest quality and freshest products.


From breakfast to dinner, we strive to represent the best of what France has to offer.


Sharing Paris with you also means partnering with iconic brands that make the City of Lights so unique. Whether it is food related or the latest trendy gifts, our shelves and website will take you to Paris on a whim!

We are very proud to be trusted by Pierre Hermé, Alain Milliat, Mariage Freres, Le Chocolat des Francais, Confiture Parisienne, Les Interchangeables… to represent their brands and products.


Finally, our wines are a very important and a unique part of what we do: we hand select and directly import from small producers, whom we go and visit regularly, the best of the French terroir. This direct connection to the winemaker makes our wine portfolio authentically unique! 


So whether you want to call us a bakery, a café, a restaurant, a gift shop, a patisserie, a delicatessen, a cake shop, a wine bar or a bistro... do not wait any longer to join “L'Expérience”!


A bientôt!
