Chef Yann Blanchard got his passion for pastries while working in his parental bakery back in France as a child. After studying in Paris and gaining some international experience, he settled in Calgary. Yann Haute Patisserie opened in 2009 and is still a growing company.
"We manage to give customer a little adventure into the world of French pastries (I am an authentic, France-trained pastry chef). Armed with great energy, humour, product knowledge (from ingredients to History) and superior quality, we can tailor to a unique blend of occasion items down to regular pieces like bread.
What we manage to do is to be memorable!" -Yann
Yann Haute patisserie is now part of the prestigious Relais Desserts French association

Yes, it is a house!
This house was built in or around 1912. It was a famiy house before being separated into smaller units. A few different professionals even occupied some of the suites over the years. Yann & Jeraldine first met with the owners of the house in 2006. They had recently purshased the building and loved the idea of a little pastry shop. They were incredibly patient and generous during the long months it took to obtain all the permits and renovations! Three long years after, Yann Haute Patisserie was finally able to open its doors for the first time on December 24th 2009.
The pastry shop kept evolving from offering a few different products to having a separate counter with up to 24 macaron flavours everyday!
Our yard was design and built by SMOL design in early 2015. This was a visually amazing new layout for the front of the shop.
Some of the little things we value:
