A Taste of France in Brooklyn: Honeybee Pâtisserie

About 2 weeks ago, I stumbled upon this article about a new Parisian bakery in Bensonhurst. It was quite an inspiring story and piqued my interest. The owner, Anna Ng, is only 29 years old — she quit her boring job, flew to France to study the culinary arts, became a chef and opened up her own pastry shop. How awesome is that?

It’s quality over quantity, so you won’t find any imperfection in the beautiful display case of intricately designed desserts. I loved everything I had. All the desserts have different layers of ingredients, different textures that all come together.

1) Passion: caramélia milk chocolate mousse, genoise sponge cubes, passion fruit mango gelée, dulcey almond croustillant, mango sauce ($5.49) – The presentation was playful and it was so refreshing.

2) Banana chocolate crunch: chocolate syrup soaked chocolate biscuit, chocolate almond feuilletine, banana mousse, chocolate mousse ($5.49) – loved the crunch and the combination of banana and chocolate – perfection.

3) Matcha mint chocolate cream macaron ($2.50) — WOW! Loved this. It’s definitely on par with the big name macaron places in the city, and I even dare say it was better than any I’ve had in NYC. I love the matcha and mint flavors!

I also had their drip coffee, which was on point.

I love the decor — the white exposed brick walls, the cupcake holders on one side of the wall, the communal bench, music playing in the background, and great lighting. I would love to sit here all day.
