Mumbai: The patisserie that opened on 1 August will serve in predominantly four categories: pastries, including tarts and macaroons, chocolates, ice creams, with variations like sorbets and ice-cream cakes, and a selection of breads, rolls and croissants.

The good stuff

The patisserie’s first outlet in India is spacious for a takeaway, with sufficient seating for 10. Debailleul also delivers everywhere in the city.

Macaroons and chocolate mousse at Debailleul, Mumbai.

The not-so-good

Debailleul imports everything from Belgium, including the bread (which needs to be used within two days) and cakes, because they feel that’s the only way to maintain quality. What is missing is the smell of fresh warm bread.

Talk plastic

The chocolates, which can be bought per piece, cost Rs91 and Rs95. The cakes costRs2,250-3,000 (they come in sizes/portions for 1-10 people).
