1st year Anniversary

January 2021 La Bel-France pantry was created.

We offer traditional French baked goods as well as vegan and gluten free adaptations

Wanting to have their own business and not having any French pâtisseries on the Island, they decided that the safer way to start (with covid) was to create La Bel-France pantry.

Elodie started baking as a child and kept self-teaching pastry techniques. She was always the one making dessert for special occasions and family reunions.

They are both passionate about putting smiles on people faces with food, expanding the pantry and want to share it with Cape Breton.


Baked Goods

Bart came up with the name, La Bel-France, which is a wordplay with BEL(gium)-France, and it sounds like “La belle France” meaning “The beautiful France”.
Elodie invented the logo as she wanted something that reminded her of where she grew up, in Provence (the South of France) as per the traditional apron.
