Located in Fells Point, Sacré Sucré specializes in pastries like French macarons, éclairs, and cakes. Their goodies are made in small batches daily, and the kitchen’s open so patrons can see the owners, Dane Thibodeaux and Manuel Sánchez, in action. They’re opening THIS SATURDAY so mark your calendars, Nomsters – we guarantee that this Baltimorean pastry studio will blow your freakin’ mind.
The space had a cool contemporary vibe, which we loved. Anddd as you can see, their pastries were absolutely beautiful. They’re the kind of pastries that make people “oooo” and “ahhhh” when they see ’em on display. Anywho, we’re happy to report that they tasted even better than they looked. We happily devoured everything, and each bite was better than the next. Here’s a list of everything we tried:
- Dark chocolate, rose, lemon, pistachio and orange blossom macarons
- A dark chocolate eclair with chocolate cream and glaze with whipped ganache on top with brownie squares
- A vanilla bean eclair with Madagascar vanilla bean cream and glaze with vanilla sponge cake on top
- A matcha and coconut travel cake: matcha cake with a coconut ganache center, enrobed in white chocolate with coconut flakes
- Salted caramel marshmallows made with fleur de sel
It’s nearly impossible to pick favorites, but if we HAD to choose, we’d go with their eclairs and their matcha cake. The pastry shells were light and airy, and the cream filling was to-die-for good. We could’ve easily eaten 10 in one sitting and were low key disappointed when we finished them. Get BOTH flavors when they open because…well, do you really need a reason? #TreatYoself
… if you don’t take a shot of stacked macarons, did they even exist? Ha…
We weren’t sure how we felt about their matcha cake at first, but it grew on us, like we went HAM on this baby. You can realllly taste the matcha, and the sweetness of the coconut ganache complemented the cake perfectly. If you’re big into matcha (…or even if you’re not), this is an absolute must try. Big ups to Dane and Manuel because they clearly know how to slay on all fronts. Whether it be a traditional pastry or a more creative one, they sure as hell deliver, and we can’t wait to eat more of their delish creations.
Also, tea lovers unite! Their selection is impressive, and it’s honestly the best tea we’ve had in the city. We tried two different flavors and loved both: Sencha Premier and Macaron à la pêche. The former’s a green tea from Shizuoka, Japan, and the latter’s a fruity blend of pear, papaya, pineapple, mango, fig and rose.
So. Effing. Good.
