L’Éclair de Génie Vancouver Opening

Vancouver now has its very own L’Éclair de GĂ©nie boutique and I couldn’t be happier!!  I first tried eclairs from L’Éclair de GĂ©nie on a family trip to Paris and fell in love.  They are presented artistically and each and everyone of them were so beautiful that it was actually hard for us to choose just […]
