Concept Estelle Gourmet is a lovely boutique located in Larchmont, NY. When you look at it from the outside, it may seem like another nice tea or coffee shop but Estelle Gourmet is far more than that! It is a whole food concept store which offers at the same time: meals (eat-in or take-out), pastries and crepes, cooking classes and catering for parties of all sizes. The place is organized in two separated spaces:
A sitting area where customers can have a light lunch, coffee, tea or just a pastry
An area dedicated to cooking classes.
For Whom Everybody who lives in Westchester or is just passing through. Children are more than welcome.
Story Estelle was born in Yaoundé, Cameroon. She left to go to college in France and a few years later begun a career in the banking industry. She arrived in New York with her husband and 2 children in 2009. Cooking was her true passion and she decided to make a career of it. She trained and worked in the City as a personal Chef. In January 2015 she opened Estelle Gourmet in Larchmont.
My Experience I love Estelle Gourmet! I love the atmosphere of her boutique which makes you immediately feel at home. The crepes and French pastries are excellent! My favorite is doubtless the Saint-Honoré, a French classic made with choux pastry, vanilla cream and whipped cream. Estelle Gourmet doesn’t offer a big choice for lunch but her salad bar focuses on fresh and healthy ingredients which is a plus. The kids love the fact that they can have a savory crepe for entrée and a sweet one for dessert! I have tested her cooking classes and they are great as well whether they are for adults or children! They are perfect for a birthday party! In terms of catering, Estelle can make it all: a seated dinner for 8 or 100, a cocktail party for 200…She also offers weekly meals to take out!
If you need a cake or pastries it’s better to give her a call and place an order if you don’t want to come back empty-handed! Estelle doesn’t make a lot of them in advance and they go fast! ~Nathalie
