Mon Paris Patisserie

Our stop number three on Vanfoodster's Best Croissant Challenge was Mon Paris Patisserie. Located on the 'other side' at Metrotown Station, MPP is a small but welcoming bakery with some creative choices. 
There is currently one small table available inside the bakery and it was occupied by a young fellow who was taking his time (I don't blame him for that) and enjoying some activities on his phone. As a result, we tried to take some photos outside in the rain and wind with mixed results!
Mon Paris Patisserie's entry in the best croissant challenge is the Rubylicious with Marscapone, strawberry gel and Ruby chocolate.
It was delicious and perfectly baked with flaky pastry and rich cheese. We kind of felt like we got shorted on the strawberry at least in comparison to the pictures that I have seen on Instagram. I sort of mangled the poor thing with a plastic knife to get this picture and torrential rains did not help.
We tried a cream cheese croissant as well which was also very nicely made with cream cheese inside and cream cheese icing on top.
Finally, we tried a Kouign-Amann (from the Breton words for cake and butter) which we had never heard of before but enjoyed immensely. This was a rich and wonderful pasty, a little on the sweet side and amazingly buttery. You definitely want to try this.
The counters at MPP offer some wonderful works of chocolate and pastry and they are worth a visit.
I'm not sure why but this bakery like a couple of others that we have visited recently, do not have drip coffee. I guess they would rather sell you an Americano but personally, I prefer dark rich coffee with pastry or dessert. 
Nevertheless, we give Mon Paris Patisserie 4 out of 5.
