Francophiles have a new destination in Austin, as Paris in a Bite is now open in Westlake. The shop can be found in Davenport Village, at 3801 North Capital of Texas Highway. Paris in a Bite’s website states that it hopes to bring “high-end European style fine treats to Austin, to Texas, and to the United States.”
Paris in a Bite offers typical French items like coffee, cheese plates, caviar, French wines, and Champagne, as well as baked goods like macarons (in flavors from vanilla to rose lychee), croissants, and ham and butter sandwiches. The menu (which is surprisingly affordable) is still rotating.
Paris in a Bite is owned by a French couple, Pierre Leitgib and Olivia Frey-Leitgib, who apparently spent three and a half years sailing around the world in a 45-foot Catamaran with their kids in tow (and 120 bottles of champagne in the hull, naturally).
The bakery is open from Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
