We love stories about family-run businesses. Behind the nine-store French patisserie, Paul Lafayet, is a father-and-son team. Their philosophy is to mesh well-acclaimed French patisserie traditions with modern sensibilities and creativity to bring that moment of joy to your daily life. There are 20+ types of delicacies from cakes to tarts, and a wide range of colorful macarons – all handmade fresh daily using the finest ingredients, like vanilla from Madagascar, cream and butter from Normandy. If that’s not enough, the Crème Brûlée, which has earned a huge following inspiring imitators across the city’s restaurants and bakeries, is the best in Hong Kong.
