FIRST LOOK: Desserts By Clément Brings French Pastries & Sandwiches To San Diego's Pacific Beach

December 14, 2023

The former executive chef of San Diego's beloved Le Parfait Paris has opened his own French bakery & café in Pacific Beach.

Clément Le Déoré grew up in France, began baking at 15 years old, and cooked around the world for a decade until settling in San Diego. Before starting his own wholesake bakery, Desserts by Clément, he was the executive chef of Le Parfait Paris, which has several locations around San Diego. Clément was at one time chosen to appear on The Great American Baking Show but never made it due to the onset of the global pandemic. He was also a finalist on the most recent season of Food Network's Spring Baking Championship.
With assistance from Clément's close friend Romain Bonnet, a one-time pastry chef who is now a property manager and star of Netflix's Selling Sunset, Le Déoré took over the space previously occupied by Freshii in San Diego's Pacific Beach to open a standalone location of Desserts by Clément bakery. The French café offers a menu of coffee and espresso drinks, teas, sandwiches, quiches, a croque monsieur, French breakfast, and a bakery case filled with desserts, macarons, cakes, croissants, and other pastries. The business is also applying for a beer and wine license. 
Clément intends to open additional bakery locations around San Diego in the future, as well as aspires to launch a full-service French restaurant. Expect him to test recipes with frequent specials at Desserts by Clément.

Desserts by Clément is now open at 1380 Garnet Avenue, Suite E, in San Diego's Pacific Beach. For more information, visit and check out the menus below.
