Bee Cave gets a new French pastry shop and cafe with the opening of FoliePop’s, which will focus on customizable pastries. It is now open in the Hill Country Galleria on 13420 Galleria Circle, Suite A140, as of Sunday, August 2. The shop is only accepting pickups and deliveries placed online for now.
The main pastry item at FoliePop’s will consist of three components:
- FolieBases: the empty edible vessels made of items such as crepes, croissants, brownies, or others.
- FolieCreams: fillings.
- Pops: chocolate spheres that are filled with a fruit or vegetable puree, which is supposed to be cracked.
Since there are eight different options for each of those three elements, FoliePop’s boasts of 512 flavor combinations. There are several box options, and the pastry creations come in regular or small sizes.
Co-founders Antoine Chassonnery and Audrey Sigoure worked in Dubai developing products for Fauchon, a Paris-based French food company focusing on deli products and sweets. They moved to Austin earlier this summer with the goal of opening FoliePop’s.
Chassonnery will serve as the executive chef of the cafe. His grandfather Auguste Pralus created the praluline, a brioche bun studded with pecans, in 1955, and won the Meilleur Ouvrier de France that same year.
Pickups and deliveries are available from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. The cafe will reopen for dine-in service and in-person ordering at a later point, pending COVID-19 safety regulations, when it will be open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. The menu will expand with savory options as well, alongside coffee and tea.
