Bon Macaron Patisserie has a cult following in Victoria, BC since opening there in 2013. It launches two new locations in Vancouver this month: a Kitsilano patisserie which opened August 8th at 2823 W. Broadway, and a Granville Island storefront will open its doors soon after.
Owners David Boetti and Yann Fougere, both French, met at university in the South of France and later moved to BC, where Fougere completed his degree at University of Victoria’s Peter B. Gustavson School of Business. After working at several bakeries in Victoria—Fougere was manager at the iconic Murchie’s for four years—the friends opened a patisserie dedicated to macarons.
Boetti and Fougere create an inventive and constantly expanding array of sweet and savoury macarons. Think white truffle sea salt, bubble gum, lavender chocolate, bacon, goat cheese and fig and more. They serve an appreciative market at scales ranging from single macarons to full weddings, with presentation options that include striking macaron cakes and towers. Macarons are always gluten-free, and dairy-free are versions available.
Bon Macaron Patisserie has earned its many fans by adhering to the highest standards of quality in ingredients, preparation, and service, and by developing strong community ties through working extensively with local producers and charities. These standards will be carried over to Vancouver, where new flavours will regularly be created using ingredients sourced directly from the Granville Island Public Market. A winning fusion of French tradition and West Coast freshness and ingenuity, Bon Macaron is set to make a delicious, multi-coloured, multi-flavoured splash in Vancouver’s internationally renowned food scene.
