A decade ago, Chez Christophe, a pastry shop owned by Christophe Bonzon and his wife Jessica, opened its doors on the north side of Hastings in the Burnaby Heights area. Over the years, the couple’s passion and hard work have resulted in numerous achievements, including the launch of their second location in White Rock, B.C., in 2019. Chez Christophe offers a delightful blend of traditional Swiss desserts and pastries infused with contemporary flavors and locally sourced ingredients. Their menu features an assortment of delectable baked goods, including cakes, pastries, artisan chocolates, macarons, and signature chocolate bars, complemented by a full coffee bar.

Recently, Chez Christophe celebrated its 10th anniversary, marking a decade of unparalleled dedication and commitment by its co-founder, Christophe Bonzon. To commemorate this remarkable milestone, the shop unveiled a limited-edition collection of chocolates and pastries that will be released throughout the year. Additionally, a public celebration was held at both of their locations on Friday, April 28th. Chez Christophe’s 10th anniversary is a testament to the unwavering passion and artistry that the Bonzons bring to their craft, making them one of the most beloved pastry shops in Burnaby and beyond.

“The achievement of our small business is the result of the combined effort of each and every staff member. The support of our community and loyal customers who have been alongside us throughout this amazing journey in the last 10 years is truly appreciated. One decade down; forever to go” – Christophe Bonzon, co-founder of Chez Christophe.
