Weddings are one of those rites of passage to which many of us aspire. Once two hearts are lucky enough to find one another and decide that they are ready to take this next step in their lives together, there are usually dozens and dozens of decisions that need to be made to celebrate that special day. The Frenchman’s Corner is here to assist you with some of those decisions.
Some of the questions you may be asking yourselves are:
- Do we have a wedding cake or some kind of cake alternative?
- Do we serve other desserts in addition to cake?
- What kind of wedding favors should we have for guests?
- Maybe you want to have welcome gifts for guests staying at nearby hotels
- What kind of gifts do we give our bridesmaids and groomsmen?
- What do we want to do for wedding favors for guests at the reception?
We have options that could help you to answer some or all of these questions.We invite you to contact us to discuss the various options so that you may check off one of the many items on your “To Do” list.
The Frenchman’s Corner carries a line of extremely beautiful and delicious single serving French pastries that are made here in the United States. People often exclaim that “They look too beautiful to eat.” We typically carry several types of cheesecakes, traditional European and American pastries. We even usually carry two gluten free cake options. Our pastry options are available here. The Frenchman’s Corner can provide the number of pastries that you would like and then you or your caterer/event venue can arrange them in any way that suits you at your reception.
In order to ensure that we have enough of all of the pastries that you need for your special day, we need to receive orders (over quantity 15) and payment at least 30 days prior to the event date. (We will deliver pastries to venues within 20 miles of our store location for a delivery fee. For venues outside of the 20 mile radius from our store, the pastries must be picked up from our store unless other arrangements are made with us.) It is recommended that the pastries be picked up frozen in order to keep them as fresh as possible for the event. They typically will thaw out within about 30 minutes or so. They are typically better served at room temperature.

A Brief History
The Frenchman’s Corner began in a tumultuous time. It opened in September 2001, shortly after the 9/11 attacks, and has been in business continuously since that time. It was a single case of Neuhaus chocolates in the foyer of what is now Grass Roots on E. Davis St. in Culpeper, VA. Over the years, the store has expanded its offerings to include other high end European and American chocolates. Today, the store remains an independent retailer of Neuhaus chocolates (one of Belgium’s oldest and most famous chocolate makers.) We also offer high end American made chocolates and toffees, French pastries, as well as, a variety of fine coffees, teas and other gourmet items.
