Behind the Business Spotlight |The Christmas Edition | Mon Paris Patisserie

Mon Paris Patisserie
Owner: Elena Krasnova

Why Burnaby?
I wanted to be on the quieter street but still with enough traffic. Also, I live in Burnaby and having business close to home was important. When I saw the new Beresford street near Metrotown it was clear right away it was a perfect spot. It didn’t have too much car traffic but a lot of foot traffic which felt very European to me.

What Makes Your Product Unique? We make everything from scratch using high quality ingredients and everything is fresh everyday. I wanted to introduce Canadians to the high pastries and desserts I experienced while living in Paris. I wanted people in Vancouver to have the same European experience.

What Is Your Favourite Christmas Confection?

Christmas logs!So many tastes and forms to experience with! We have two for this reason: one is rolled Japanese biscuit with cherry and vanilla cream and another is our higher end chocolate chestnut logs.
