Winter 2017-2018 marked the opening of Bo. Pastry — an exquisite coffee shop located in the heart of Kyiv and owned by the famous Chef Hector Jimenez-Bravo. In so much as several days after the opening, the place was already swarming with guests, and it stays so up to date. Whether it's a unique menu with pastries you won't find anywhere else, convenient location or a bit of magic, Bo. Pastry certainly left an impression in hearts of Kyiv's sweet tooth. Let's check it out!
Winding Kreshchatyk street was undoubtedly made for walking, or, rather, long strolls with pleasant conversations in just as pleasant company. Of course, life doesn't always play out perfectly — on busy days Kreshchatyk with its unique architecture flashes in front of our eyes as we rush to catch a bus or a metro train, at other times it's raining so hard we barely see anything at all and seek for a place to hide. In any case, sometimes we truly need to stop and contemplate the surroundings and ourselves. Sure enough, Bo. Pastry is a right place to do that.
Bo. Pastry was opened in December 2017 and worked in a test mode till mid-January. The owner and Chef, Hector Jimenez-Bravo, drew inspiration from Montreal's culture and multiple trips to France. Conveying unique flavors, textures and aromas was the main goal Hector set for this café. Without a doubt, variety of pastries and their flavors will satisfy even the most spoiled gourmets.
