Aux Petits Delices made our wedding cake 3 years ago and it was perfect! We’ve been getting a cake every year for our anniversary to relive the experience! Absolutely love everything they make and the decorations are always beautiful. Highly recommend this bakery for a special event or even a daily treat. More...

I literally planned my route driving from Scranton to North Carolina JUST so I could stop at Aux Petit Delices. This is maybe my favorite bakery ever, and DEFINITELY my favorite French bakery.

The desserts are absolutely delicious. And I would definitely recommend others to stop in and try them. I have tried many of them and have enjoyed them and have yet to be disappointed!!

I went on Sat. 7/29 and bought a $25 gift card and a marjolaine for my husband. The young women at the counter were so nice and helpful. A wonderful way to remember Paris.

Where to even begin. I tried the napoleon, a layered flaky puff pastry and a slice of marjolaine, an almond hazelnut sponge cake with buttercream and chocolate mousse. The napoleon was probably the best flake pastry I've ever had, exquisitely light yet sweet frosting, baked fresh. The flakes practically melted. The marjolaine was rich and decadent, not overly sweet nor too subtle, flavorful with a nice texture from the ground hazlenut. I felt the need to try everything else in the bakery but controlled myself (everything in moderation) so I settled for some pistachio gelato and a napoleon to go. Even an iced coffee for my aunt (a coffee connesuier) was deemed excellent. We will bypass the starbucks next door for iced coffee now. Overall, this bakery is next level stuff. A marriage of talent and experience. I asked Marqessa (super friendly and professional) about her culinary background and fittingly she's had a passion for baking since she was 8, working and studying with chefs at French restaurants in Philly at 14. We've been ordering birthday cakes from here for 18 years, and though Patrick's work was good (customer service not so much), you can bet your bottom dollar I'm going to try every single chocolate/pastry/cake in this bakery with Marqessa at its helm.

Aux Petits Delices did an amazing job with our 3 small wedding cakes! As a major foodie family, we knew we had to have great quality and beautiful designs -- Aux Petits Delices listened to our vision and created a stunning set up with the intricate designs we were hoping for. Guests were raving about how good the cakes were, and it was incredibly reasonable for the quality! They are great! Thank you Marqessa and team! More...

I go in to the bakery at least weekly. I've never had anything that wasn't delicious, and the service is incredible. Marqessa is friendly and gives the place an inviting feeling. Favorite menu items have to be the macaroons (for their perfect texture) and the almond croissants. More...

A very nice small bakery shop on the Main Line. The deserts are always fresh and taste divine. Frankly, their eclairs are better than those in Paris, France, purchased at the finest shop. We also had a wedding cake prepared by this shop for our son's wedding in Sept.2018, and it was delicious, unique and beautiful. We received a lot of compliments on the cake from our guests.The service is also very good, staff are polite and very helpful.Thank you for your business! More...

Under New Management with lots of gluten free delicious additions. They're small treats are around 4 to $6 great to enjoy with a cup of coffee or just as afternoon treat. You could spend 50 or $60 here easily and most of their items freeze really. The cakes have thin layers and delicious creaminess and crunch where it's needed. well the gelatos are great, the macaroons are great, the opera cake is splendid. It's like having a real French Patisserie in your backyard trust me it's worth the drive. They even ship items as well and again they freeze really well find some things you like stock up you won't regret it.Also the owner is an amazing human being and her staff is fantastic and talented you'll want to go there everyday.

The best cake and chocolate shop ever. Besides wonderful French baked goods and chocolates their dedication to making things right is beyond compare. My brother's wedding was the day after a hurricane that knocked out power for days. They still baked and delivered his wedding cake right on time. A truly great business. More...

We were extremely happy with our wedding cake from Aux Petits Delices. Several guests told me it was one of the best wedding cakes they've ever tasted. (We got chocolate cake with chocolate between the layers.) I hardly ate at our wedding, but I did eat my piece of cake!

I provided one picture as inspiration and the nailed it on the cake design. It was exactly what I was looking for. So beautiful.

The company is extremely easy to work with. I would defiantly recommend this bakery.

I had wanted a small cake for my wedding and did not like the bakery with which my venue had a contract. My friend had her wedding cake from Aux Petits and I had remembered it being outstanding. If you want more than just pound cake samples, this is the place to go. They give you other options besides pound cake which I can appreciate since I love to bake myself. The cake was outstanding!

We absolutely LOVED working with this bakery!! We did cake and macaroons and we COULD NOT BE HAPPIER!!!! They were so easy to work with and they crafted the cake of my dreams without destroying my pocket! They were fast to respond, listened to what I wanted, and took the time to make sure everything was exactly what I was expecting. This is a great local business to work with and we had the most delicious cake. It was worth the upgrade!! More...

We were looking for a non-traditional wedding cake and found the perfect thing at Aux Petits Delices! Instead of the typical sponge cake, Nina was able to give us an Opera cake and a lemon creme cake that were both incredibly delicious, and unlike any wedding cake we have ever tasted! She accommodated us and both sets of parents in the little shop to plan out the style and colors, and was charming even while bombarded with our millions of ideas. We has a perfect cake that looked amazing and tasted even better! More...

I have been looking for this place since a French co-worker brought croissants into work over 10 years ago. MY SEARCH ENDED LAST WEEK, after an unexpected layover at Wayne station. For the quality of service, presentation of pastries, careful packaging, and incredible taste I would have gladly paid triple the amount that I did for croissants, tarts and pastry. My wife and I have been talking about it all week. The only true croissant on the main line. I mean where have you found a true paraffin wax bag in the last 25 years? That is the attention to detail chef has for his stellar product. That bag kept my treasured croissants fresh and flaky for at least 4 days! This place is a hands down a true find. More...

My husband and I did not want a cake but our family really pushed us into having one. We ordered through Aux Petit Delices at the recommendation of our venue and it was the best choice. The cake was beautiful and delicious. Better than any other wedding cake that I have ever had. Nina is particularly friendly and accommodating and for the quality of work that they do, the price is a steal! More...

We went to APD because I love their macaroons and we wanted a small though still delicious cake for our elopement. I only used phone to contact them, when I did I usually got handed off to a least one other person so be prepared to repeat yourself. But they make up for this bump with their flexibility. I was able to pick up a tasting box to take home and try all of the cakes. Their cakes run the gamut from simple, but dense and velvety poundcake to the elegant flavorful chambord. I was able to customize the color and decoration to make truly beautiful to look at and eat. My only compliant is they don't have a spice cake, I'm sure if they did it would be a stunner.
Also, we got a small bridal poundcake which they have everyday in the display case. We tired to customize it with colors but it didn't exactly come out as expected. The cake is so small the icing turned out quite dark. When I discussed this with APD, I talked to everyone there including the chef, but they made it right and gave us a white cake that looked lovely.
If you are looking for a cake that looks AND tastes good APD should be your first stop. It's worth the effort.

As a small business owner, I understand how important customer reviews are and I felt compelled to offer my advice to future brides looking for a special wedding cake. My husband and I are yoga teachers, and we wanted to bring the vibrant colors of India to our wedding. In my research, I came across a cake online that was deep chocolate brown with a gold and bright pink henna design. It was exactly what I wanted. I went to a very popular Main Line bakery and spoke with someone who seemed to understand what we were looking for. I had a photo of the cake with me and we did a tasting. Unfortunately, when they came back with a sample cake of the design, it was WAY off and looked messy and unattractive. I was very disappointed and I spoke with the sales person who was rude and a bit annoyed that I was unhappy. She told me to research some cake stencils on the internet and call them back. I know nothing about baking cakes, let alone cake design or stencils. That afternoon, I called APD and spoke to Nina. I explained my situation and she asked me to email her a picture of my dream design. We made an appointment for a tasting and she said she would speak with the chef/baker/owner about the design. For one thing, the cake tasting was amazing. My husband who could care less about food, let alone desserts was in heaven. One tasted better than the next. A huge jump up from our previous tasting. Nina was not only listening to me, but excited about the very different design I wanted. She not only researched stencils and different ways of pulling off the design, but she ordered a few different sets of stencils and met with me a few times to talk about ideas and get my opinion. Great customer service! and I felt that they were happy and excited about the challenge of something different. Are they the cheapest bakery in town? NO. Did I want a cheap, unattractive, plain cake that had no flavor? NO. This is your wedding. Make it special and hire APD. More...

Our cake turned out exactly how we pictured it in our head and we could not have been more thrilled with our experience working with Aux Petits. Nina was great to work with and was able to turn our ideas into reality. And the best part was, all the guests thought the cake not only looked great but was delicious too!! We got The Chambord and the flavors were amazing!!! More...

Patrick and Nina Gauthron were terrific from the start. Nina does the tastings, providing helpful advice and suggestions, offering many photos for us to choose from for the decoration, and following up on all the details. The best advice she gave us was, for a wedding of about 160 guests, to stay with a four layer cake and get a sheet cake to keep in the kitchen for the necessary additional servings.The cake, of course, was both beautiful and delicious as Patrick is, to our mind, the finest baker in the area. Equally important, Patrick delivered it exactly when he said he would. The top layer rests happily in the newly-wed's freezer, ready for their first anniversary. More...

Our wedding cake was delicious! We over-ordered a bit, and it was good that we did because a couple of our guests went back for seconds and even thirds. Chef Patrick was wonderful to work with, and was extremely accommodating even on fairly short notice. I'm so happy that we went with Aux Petits Delices and we'll definitely be returning there for other special occasions...and even for no occasion whatsoever! More...

Excellent experience! My fiance did not want to use the caterer as the wedding cake provider, so we had to search for one. Aux Petits Delices turned out to be a fantastic choice! We had a tasting, then a long conversation with the chef, and we placed the order. We also left samples of the colors we wanted to be used and we sent via e-mail the initial "seal" that we wanted to have on the cake.

Subsequently, we made changes to the flavors in the cake - no problem at all! We got the updated pricing a couple of days later.

To be perfectly honest, I did not quite know what to expect! We had a square cake with a Tiffany design but we had not seen it done before. Oh well - I have to tell you, the cake was fantastic! Our photographer said it best: "One of the best cakes I have seen in a long while". And it is not just about how the cake looked, it tasted fantastic! It was moist, fresh, and it reflected everything that we wanted! Delivery - I don't know the exact time when it was delivered, but it was there about an hour before the ceremony!

Honestly, you can't go wrong with Aux Petits Delices - they have the passion for cakes!

Was the best cake I have ever had. I was not as much concerned with how the cake looked, but how it tasted. I was not interested in having anything simple or ordinary tasting. I alternated layers of the "Tahitian": vanilla sponge cake filled with kirsch mousseline, fresh strawberries,mangos, kiwi and raspberries and the "Chambord": layers of almond/hazelnut meringue and chocolate sponge cake filled with fresh raspberries, chocolate mousse and white chocolate ganache. Absolutely worth every penny. People were stealing cake at the end of the reception. More...

Q&A

I love the feedback from guests who come through the shop and enjoy what we have made for them. Whether it is a simple macaron or an extravagant wedding cake, the best part is seeing how happy we have made someone.

I have always had a deep love and appreciation for French pastry and I happened to purchase the business from the founder of the pastry shop. It is important to me to carry on the tradition of classical French pastry and this was a perfect opportunity for me to purchase and run my own business.

We are a unique and classical French patisserie, there aren't many around that offer not only pastries you would find in France but we also do custom wedding cakes, specialty cakes and we make all of our own chocolates.
