Cupid’s Countdown #6 | Ooh là là at Ambrosia Patisserie

Cupid’s Countdown #6 | Ooh là là at Ambrosia Patisserie

When we asked Cupid to share #6 on his Countdown to Valentine’s Day in Barrington, all he could say was “Ooh là là!” He popped a petit four into his mouth and could not stop raving about the elegance, sophistication and pure joy radiating from the counter at Barrington’s own Ambrosia Euro American Patisserie. A traditional French bakery offering up gourmet pastries, baked goods, confections and beverages, Ambrosia is #6 on Cupid’s Countdown to Valentine’s Day for gifts that are as romantic as they are sweet.

Ambrosia is known for authentic old-world recipes, methods and techniques that never disappoint. According to Cupid himself, Ambrosia is the place to go this Valentine’s Day to get your Valentines something beautiful to eat! These treats are perfect for adults who love pastries and travels to France or kids who love all things special and sweet.

Ambrosia is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday this Valentine’s week. Here are some of Cupid’s Favorites…
