Dousoeur is a new patisserie and miniscule salon (3 small tables each with only 2 seats) run by two French sisters, thus the tricky play on the words “two sisters” and “douceur,” the French word for sweet shop.
Classic renderings as chocolate mousse, creme caramel,  lemon tart, walnut macaroons, mille feuilles, and peach clafoutus on the menu with creations such as: almond brioche, financier, and cannelé.
Besides the traditional items, Douseur de Paris has a deft touch when it comes to forming pastries as an exquisite pyramid of pink glazed cream puffs named, Marie Antoinette, aromatized with orange liqueur which looks more like jewelry than a traditional pastry. The macaroons are designed and displayed like a croquembouche to attract people passing by. A small lunch selection is available with some old standards as: quiche Lorraine, Camembert, saucisson, cornichons and croque-monsieur.
