Featured Spot of the Week: Renaud’s Patisserie and Bistro

Every Wednesday we share our featured spot of the week. This is to promote local businesses and provide our guests with a travel guide in Santa Barbara. It’s just our little way of saying “thank you” to both our neighbors and our patrons. This week we’re featuring a French patisserie and bistro called Renaud’s.

Renaud’s Patisserie and Bistro is as good as it gets when it comes to French bakery and pastry items. Founded in 2008, it is still going strong in its now numerous California locations.

It’s a quaint, upscale spot with a dedication to authenticity when it comes to the staff and the business’s overall presentation. The atmosphere transports guests straight to a cobblestone street in Paris, where they can sip espresso and nibble on pastries.

They’re not playing around when it comes to the food, either. Guests love their exquisite almond croissant with its flakey exterior and rich almond paste filling. And people can’t get enough of their macarons, a French delicacy that comes in a number of flavors. They even serve savory lunch items like Croque Monsieur, a traditional French sandwich served on homemade bread.

It’s a must-see when visiting Santa Barbara. So drop by with your family or go solo to try some of Renaud’s delightful sweets. You can even order specialty items for your party or event. No matter how you decide to enjoy Renaud’s Patisserie and Bistro, we’re sure you’ll be coming back for more.
