The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as baked goods. Sneak up on someone's chest drum with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of French pastries, cakes, and lunch at Jean-Jacques Bakery in Carytown.

For the last 23 years, Jean-Jacques Bakery has employed traditional French baking methods and abided by a commitment to quality to concoct culinary care-packages made up of pastries, cakes, breads, and cookies. Find out if your mouth-oven is set at a high enough temperature to melt the flaky butter croissant, or celebrate upcoming seasonal festivities with holiday items. Wintry treats include pies ($8.95 for 9”) and cellophane-clad cookie domes, which shelter 50 holiday-themed cookies ($25) that will fight one another to the death in some sort of postapocalyptic cookie match if not joyously devoured. The bakery also gives exhausted sweet teeth a reprieve with lunch items, such as soups, salads, and paninis.

Jean Jacque, a French baker by trade and two-sevenths of Dikembe Mutombo's full name, set out to establish a bakery in the U.S. that maintained the artistic and flavorful integrity of French baking. With the help of club-goer Clement Denicourt, he recruited Jozef Bindas as their shop's executive baker. Today Mr. Bindas owns the bakery while his daughter manages the proceedings and waters the storefront when it looks dry.

Reviews

Yelpers and TripAdvisors both give Jean-Jacques Bakery an average of four stars:

  • Step into this epicenter aromatic nirvana and be ready for sensory overload! All things "bakery" are represented here. Mouth watering pastries, croissants, bread, muffins, cakes, pies, cannolis, tarts, etc. – Sean C., Yelp
  • The fruit tarts. I could eat those until I died of gluttony. – Mos D., Yelp

Jean Jacques Bakery and Cafe

The husband-and-wife chefs at Jean Jacques Bakery and Cafe have kneaded and frosted French- and European-style breads and pastries for more than three decades. Jozef and Emmanuelle Bindas oversee the ovens as they roll out steaming, flaky baked goods such as brioches, almond croissants, and the assorted pastries that fill the bakery’s glass display case and infuse the air with a buttery scent laced with cinnamon. French batards and baguettes join fluffy bread baked into novelty shapes, such as crabs and the human genome, and holiday treats ring in the season with stollen and bûche de Noël. Cakes in flavors such as chocolate truffle and cassis mousse help celebrate the occasions in between, from anniversaries to birthdays. Jean Jacques Bakery and Cafe also serves lunches of soups, salads, and sandwiches, and Emmanuelle helms the shop’s wedding-cake designs.
