Calgary Bakery: Ohh La La Patisserie



For anyone with a sweet tooth, this little pastry shop tucked away in southwest Calgary is dangerous, dangerous territory. From flawless macarons to flaky pastries, Sebastian Judkovski, pastry chef and owner of Ohh La La Patisserie, creates an array of sweet and savoury treats that are definitely worth the drive.

The playful name of Judkovski’s shop matches the white and orange interior, as well as his bubbly demeanour as he mans the counter throughout the week. There are all types of French baking on display like pain au chocolat, brioche and madeleines, but, if there’s one thing that makes a patisserie complete, it’s macarons. The 10 types here cover most shades of the rainbow and are all equally tempting. There are raspberry and blackberry macarons filled with buttercream that has been mixed with house-made jams for a not-too-sweet fruity flavour; there’s lemon velvet, filled with a tart lemon curd; and there’s the always-popular salted caramel.

Finding harmony between buttery pastry and a classic Canadian ingredient, Ohh La La bakes maple croissants fresh each morning. Made with maple butter and cinnamon layered through the pastry before baking and finished with a sugar glaze, the croissants make for a sweet morning treat. Slice them in half, toss in a fried egg and some bacon and you have the best sweet-meets-savoury breakfast a person could ask for.
