Jean-Michel’s experience and creative culinary skills have earned him many world-wide accolades in magazines, brochures, and traveling guides, including “Rick Steves,” and the well known French tour guide, “Michelin Vert.”

“Le CaliBressan,” created in 1996 by Jean-Michel and Jill while in France, boasts clients from many European countries, the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii), and Canada.

Jill, missing her native California, has returned with Jean-Michel to share their wonderful talents in “tempting your taste buds” with confectionery delights expressing a true joie de vivre!

Bon Appetit!


Oh yum. I walked in here as if my feet were powered by some unknown force. Chocolates were beautiful!!! I tried several and my favorite was the passionfruit caramel- just divine. The coffee was good, but the chocolate! They also have terrific marketing chocolates- that can be made with your business' logo which are very elegant. Yummy treat and adorable spot ( like most things in SB). Next time I will plan to bring some home. Oh- they also have gelato! :-)
