Le Ky Patisserie is the newest addition to the Hourglass Social House located in the Hourglass District at Curry Ford and Bumby. This indoor food court-market hybrid seems to follow the trend made popular locally by East End Market, the Market On Magnolia, the Plant Street Market, as well as others. Due to the popularity of these mixed-use spaces, parking always seems to be an issue, and that problem is apparent at the Hourglass Social House.
I was immediately delighted when I walked into Le Ky. The brother-sister duo behind the brand, Khai and Uyen, are extremely friendly and ready to appease any sweet tooth or lunch seeker.
I was on a mission to find some sweet treats to bring home to family visiting from out of town, as well as sample any and all of the baked goods in the pastry cooler.
First up was the Peanut Butter Banana Mousse Cake (pictured below). I was so excited to try this one I ate it before leaving the store.
Upon sinking my teeth into this moist and delicate confection, an explosion of peanut butter filling satisfied all of my cravings. The banana flavor had a perfect balance and didn’t have the overwhelming fake banana flavor featured in many sweet treats on the market.
The Chocolate Raspberry Macaron was eaten next (it made it home at least). Raspberry is one of my favorite macaron flavors, and I loved the fresh take on these French pastries with the berries in the center. This eye-catching macaron is also enormous compared to most half dollar sized macarons. At almost the size of my hand, this treat is definitely shareable.
While I came in for sweets, I soon found out that Le Ky serves lunch options such as Spring and Summer Rolls and Bahn Mí. After my sweet experience, I can’t wait to go back to try these other freshly made delights.
If you have not yet made it out to Le Ky Patisserie, give it a try. You will not be disappointed!
*Added Bonus* Le Ky sells house-made dog treats as well. My dog Ghost went crazy for them!
