A Salem pastry shop will make its way down the coast to open a second location in Somerville’s Davis Square, taking over a former pawn shop space. Caramel Patisserie will fill 233 Elm St. with so many French pastries and breads, according to Cambridge Day.
The owners are siblings Dimitri and Sophie Vallier, who came to Massachusetts from southern central France. The pair opened their Salem shop in October 2015 and have perfected a lineup of breads, cakes, macaron towers, tarts, and other sweet treats, which they’ll be bringing to a food-filled stretch of Elm Street that includes Diesel Cafe, Kung Fu Tea, and numerous other restaurants.
“We are still in beginning stages of setting up the new location, so we do not have an opening date, but as soon as we do, we will let you know,” the Valliers wrote in a post on the shop’s Facebook page. Expect to see a variety of macaron flavors like salted caramel and rose, as well as baguettes, kouign-amann, coffee, and seasonal pastries. Stay tuned for details on an opening timeline.
