Paris’ Iconic L’Éclair de Genie Opening Shop On Robson

Eclair - l'eclair Vancouver

The Parisian renowned L’Eclair shop is opening their first North American location in Vancouver this April, on Robson Street.

The éclair is a decadent pastry, made with choux dough filled with cream and then topped off with icing.


It’s a favourite patisserie item among those in France because it’s comforting and easy to make at home.

L’Éclair de Genie is a pastry shop known for only selling éclairs. This will be their 25th location and the company’s very first North American shop.

Christophe Adam first opened the pastry concept L’Éclair de Genie in 2012.


“We have 257 kinds of éclairs, and I still have fun playing with new flavours, textures and colours,” says Adam. “The éclair must have oomph, with a dazzling, modern look.”


Adam has also opened stores in Japan, Hong Kong, and Moscow.

“We will start with 10 kinds of éclairs and introduce two new ones each month, like every other store. And we serve coffee,” says Adam.
