Houston Hotspots: Julie’s French Pastries

There are not too many spots in Houston where you can get fresh French pastries, so to my surprise I discovered a nice little French cafe  tucked away in West Houston that sells fresh pastries daily.


Located in a strip center at the corner of Memorial and Dairy Ashford, Julie’s is owned by French born pastry chef Julie Clemenceau.  If you didn’t know about this cafe you would miss it! It’s tucked away in the corner out of sight if you’re driving down Memorial.  Julie’s French Pastries has been around for a little over 2 years, and she runs the place with her husband.  The cafe already had a following and growing customer base due to the previous tenant was also a Patisserie.   The menu has basically stayed the same as well, selling crepes, croissants and cakes.

The cafe is beautifully designed with two murals of Marie-Antoinette and Mona Lisa both holding a delicious cake and cupcake.

What also sets apart this French bakery is they have a specifically designed space used as a play area for those who bring in their children which I thought was adorable! I don’t know of any cafes or bakeries that have this.

All of the French pastries are on display for customers to see in the glass display cases.

Try one of their most popular items the chocolate croissants.  You can also order specialty made cakes for any of your events.
