Step inside Janjou Patisserie and you'll forget you're in Boise, Idaho.


This French bakery offers a variety of baked goods and drinks that will tempt any patron. From macarons to tarts, just try to resist sampling them all.


Boiseans benefit from Moshit Mizrachi-Gabbitas decision to leave her career in the semiconductor field to pursue her love of baking in 2007. Janjou, named after Mizrachi-Gabbitas' mother, features French pastries, but the owner is originally from Israel. According to the patisserie's website, Mizrachi-Gabbitas graduated from Estella kitat Oman, a baking school in Israel, and held an internship at an upscale French Patisserie in the Tel Aviv area to hone her skills.

This adorable shop sits in an ideal location at State and 17th Street, making it easy to swing by for sweets before work or while running errands. Whether you're craving a croissant or a quiche, you'll be happy to know that Janjou uses no artificial ingredients or preservatives, and relies on Cloverleaf Creamery in Buhl for its butter supply.
