LeRouge Boulangerie’s deep red paneled exterior, delicately striped awning and gracefully proportioned accordion windows create a little slice of Paris in the heart of Grosse Pointe Park. The Bakery’s design blends laidback sophistication with the charm and warmth expected of a small town bakery. The result is a new neighborhood staple that is the perfect setting for both a lazy Sunday afternoon sipping coffee or a quick weekday lunch.

The interior pays homage to the hallmarks of French design with a modern sensibility that introduces clean lines, crisp corners and playful nods to the bakery’s eponymous mascot. Thonet chairs are paired with classic cast iron bistro bases with generous marble inlaid tops. Custom mosaic tile floors compliment wide plank oak floors and are outlined in delicate brass trim. The bakery’s wares are arranged on open wood shelves with decorative scrolled brackets and take centerstage against a backdrop of glossy square tile and the warm glow of copper gooseneck lamps.

Decorative leaded glass windows offer patrons a glimpse into the buzz of the kitchen while a perfectly detailed marble drink ledge allows them to perch with their treats and take in the hustle and bustle outside the front windows. Painted beadboard, chunky beams and opal shaded pendants add another layer of traditional French hospitality to this stunning and sweet community gathering spot.
