Normally, at this time of the year, a lot of my content revolves around Paque (easter in Eglish), whether it’s about the best easter chocolate in Bordeaux or egg hunts in beautiful chateaux in the region. While this year you can’t go out on chocolate hunting it doesn’t mean you have to give up the beautiful tradition of Easter. On the contrary, take it as an opportunity to discover great chocolatiers in Bordeaux. There are even several chocolatiers that will be delighted to deliver their Paque creations to the doorsteps of your home or at least your neighborhood. In this article, I present you with five excellent chocolate boutiques in the Bordeaux Metropole, where you can order chocolate for easter. Let’s start the sweetest list of the year. 

Micielo Patisserie

If you still haven’t discovered this little wonderful patisserie, located right outside the center of Bordeaux, confinement is a great time to do just that. I won’t talk about their regular yummy pastries (I’ll do that after the confinement) but I will just say that their easter menu looks fab. They have delivery points in many of the neighborhoods and suburbs of Bordeaux. You can see the list of products and all the details here.

Franck Labasse Patisserie

If you want to take the opportunity to discover some of the great patisseries and chocolatiers around the Metropole, this is your chance. Franck Labasse’s pastry shop is located in the center of Pessac. While the shop is currently closed to the public, the pastry chef prepared a beautiful easter chocolate collection and provides a delivery service.

David Capy

The MOF (Meilleurs Ouvriers de France) David Capy is one of the most celebrated chocolatiers in Bordeaux, with shops in Bordeaux center, Cauderan, Gradignan and Eysines. His chocolate shops are open during the confinement so if you’re in the mood to invest in top-notch chocolate, give him a visit.
