Do you have a sweet tooth like me? Well, if it is the case, you'll be thrilled to hear that there is a place near Bergerac where you can get your fix!
From my own experience it's quite impossible to find a Patisserie/Boulangerie (Pastry Shop/Bakery) good at both. Usually they can be brillant only at one of the 2 of them (pastries or bakery)… Well, I was proved wrong last week when we went for a walk from Creysse to Mouleydier (more infos: https://goo.gl/mKzYBm )!!!
La Gloire de Mon Père is THE place where you can get the best baguettes AND the best cakes for a special celebration or just a little treat for yourself!!!! Bonus: you can grab a table and treat yourself to a cup of coffee with one their oh so yummy pastries before going for a walk along the river Dordogne!
