When I left Burgundy this July I noticed that they had closed one of our favorite Boulangerie‘s in Beaune (the one that is right around the corner from Le Relais du Vieux Beaune – so close that you can shuffle out in pyjamas for your hot morning pain au chocolat if you fancy) for renovations.
I was alarmed. I love this boulangerie and didn’t want anything about it to change. Luckily Michele Thompson sent me the link to this and many other wonderful photos she took while staying at Le Relais du Vieux Beaune to put my mind at ease.
Beautiful new pale yellow stucco, pistachio awnings, and even the French man on his bike and a local grandmère that we pay to act as local flavour in the neighbourhood have gone to buy their morning baguettes.
