When it comes to all the sweeter things in life, Patisserie La Palme D’or has got you covered. In 2006, owner Hiromi Tanaka brought this exquisite Japanese pastry concept to Ala Moana Center, and with the help of head pastry chef Akiko Kimura and the rest of the staff, she’s has been able to offer renowned cakes, pastries, desserts, sandwiches, croissants and more.
“Akiko is always creating treats that go with the season,” Tanaka says. “And we always have our signature desserts like the Palme Chocolat, Panna Cotta and Baked Cheesecake.”
Patrons with a sweet tooth frequent the establishment on a regular basis, perhaps to taste the absolute dedication that Kimura puts into each and every creation Kimura utilizes only the best available ingredients (many of which come directly from Japan) and her own personal recipes to produce these delectable treats.
