OMG! The Best Croissant, Baguette & Pastry Ever !

Do you have a sweet tooth like me?

The Dordogne is the perfect place to sample sweet treats with lots of bakeries/pastries shops to choose from!

And if you wonder, where to buy your croissant, baguette and pastry near Bergerac, here’s our 2 favorite places :

1- Boulangerie L’Epi beaumontois (Beaumont du Perigord)

Our village has a few bakeries but our favorite has to be L’Epis beaumontois.

5 mins walk from our rental, drop in, for fresh , out of the oven croissants and some delicious “sarmentine” bread for your breakfast. The “sarmentine” is a typical local bread with sesame, easily recognisable by its shape (split ends to illustrate the vine shoots from the vineyard ).

If you get a chance, try the walnut pie, it’s the house specialty!

Location: 
L’Epi beaumontois : n°15 Rue Romieu in Beaumont-du-Perigord,

2- Boulangerie Patisserie Deli “A La Gloire de Mon Père” (Creysse, Saint Sauveur)

A la Gloire de Mon Père is our latest find!

There are in two locations: Creysse (Main St) and St Souveur (Main St)

Everything is fresh, colourful and to die for!

Bonus: you can grab a table and treat yourself to a cup of coffee with one their oh so yummy pastries (try some “chouquette”!) before going for a walk along the river Dordogne!
