Michelin-starred chef Michael Caines opens new Parisian cafe concept

The eatery will source local produce to support the community of food producers and farmers, reduce food miles and promote biodiversity.

Michelin-starred chef Michael Caines opened a new Parisian cafe concept last 13 April, a joint venture with pastry chef Sylvain Peltier.

Located at Exmouth beach, Cafe Patisserie Glacerie offers a range of French patisseries, including layered viennoiserie such as croissants, and pain au raisin handmade with Devon butter.

16 flavours of handmade Italian-style gelato will also be offered. Savoury goods include traditional Cornish pasties by Barnecutts Bakery and fresh handmade sandwiches.

Caines said the eatery will source local produce to support the community of food producers and farmers, reduce food miles and promote biodiversity, along with a commitment to reduce single-use plastics. Other sites are planned for the future.

“Café Patisserie Glacerie is a celebration of Sylvain’s artisan skill, creativity and originality,” he said in an announcement. “His modern French pastries are totally unique: you simply won’t be able to find or taste them anywhere else. We will be bringing something very special to Exmouth seafront and we can’t wait to share Sylvain’s creations with the world.”

The duo have worked together over two decades, in former Michael Caines restaurants and café bars in Exeter, Bristol, Glasgow, Canterbury, Manchester, Chester, and Abu Dhabi, as well as at Michael’s flagship Lympstone Manor which holds one Michelin star and at Michael’s two restaurants in Cornwall, The Cove at Maenporth and the Harbourside Refuge at Porthleven.

“I am now thrilled to be working with Michael as a partner in our new joint business venture, Café Patisserie Glacerie. Sideshore is such an exciting venue and I am delighted to be able to share my pastries and gelato with Exmouth locals and visitors alike,” Peltier added.
