For pastries that are close to edible perfection, it is best to defer to the Belgians. Manuel Latruwe won the prestigious International Patisserie Grand Prix before moving to Calgary 13 years ago. His signature cakes are made daily and the macarons, croissants and ice cream are nothing to scoff at. Latruwe's 32-seat patisserie also serves light breakfast and lunch with waffles, pizzas and quiche that put equal emphasis on taste. The store also offers take and bake pastries and breads that you can finish off at home.
