La Renaissance


The long-awaited second store for Sydney’s favourite French patisserie, La Renaissance, is coming soon to PYD. Adding to their iconic patisserie in The Rocks, La Renaissance PYD will showcase its incredible croissants and pastries, gateaux, tarts, macarons, chocolates and biscuits; with coffee from Sydney’s The Little Marionette and daily lunch specials made in-house. First established in 1974, La Ren moved to The Rocks in 1994 and has been flourishing in its charming historic building ever since, with daily queues out the door. Founded by Sally Charkos and her husband Pierre (who sadly passed away in 2005), Sally continues to operate the business with her current business partner and head pastry chef, Jean-Michel Raynaud. Last September, Jean-Michel was the first patissier in Australia to be inducted into the prestigious, world-wide patisserie organisation, Relais Desserts, an incredible honour for both Jean Michel and the business.
