Specializing in French macarons and artisanal pastries, Woops! Bakery serves up delicious treats in over 40 locations across the U.S. But to my delight, this high-end bakeshop has made its way to PNW!
Woops! Coeur d’Alene is located in the historic Wiggett building, and it is a must-stop during your next downtown stroll. The bakeshop is beautifully modern but still feels like a cozy, inviting spot that I could spend all day in.
Born and raised in Northern Idaho, owner Shelly Boyd decided to pursue her passion of baking and opened Woops! Coeur d’Alene in September. With Woops! Shelly’s mission was to provide a comfortable spot to enjoy some of the most scrumptious goodies in the area. Shelly and her team proudly make all the macarons and many of the pastries in house.
Anything that is not made in her bakery are imported from a larger bakery in the Bronx, whose pastries are sent from countries like Belgium, France and the Netherlands. So, don’t be confused if there are pastries and sweets on the menu that you are unfamiliar with- they are international! Shelly and her team will explain what the treats are, and soon you will be in global sugar heaven.
Along with this international flavor, Woops! offers a variety of waffles, cookies and everything in-between. But, the MVP of their all-star lineup is the macaron, which is the definition of perfection. The cookie is soft yet maintains a little bit of chewiness. And the flavors, oh the flavors!
Woops! offers a HUGE selection of macaron flavors from classics like raspberry and lemon tart to mouthwatering originals like mojito and espresso macchiato. I tried half a dozen flavors and I still can’t pick a favorite.
Woops! is the perfect spot to spend an afternoon catching up with girlfriends, grab a quick bite or to buy a thoughtful, delicious gift (macaron gift box anyone?!). Woops! is the cutest, most colorful, coolest addition to downtown CDA, and I can’t wait for you to check it out!
