Ellie's Bakery

A Parisian-inspired, pastry-filled oasis in the heart of downtown.

By Bethany Graber

What Ellie’s lacks in space, it makes up for in sugar. You can order classic French pastries like Cannelés and Croissants (as well as bistro staples like Niçoise Salad and Quiche) from the counter that dominates the space, but the pièce de résistance is the first thing you see upon entering: a case of Macarons in a rainbow of signature and seasonal flavors. Whether your pleasure is sweet or savory, breakfast or lunch, Ellie’s aims to transport you to Paris with each bite.
