The name says it all at this European-style patisserie and chocolate shop located just a stone's throw from North Park University. Beijo, Portuguese for the word love, combines with the French word for "chocolate" to set the tone for the house specialty: gourmet truffles in flavors such as chai tea, white chocolate-mint, curried milk chocolate and toasted coconut.The brigadeiro, a Brazilian dessert chocolate, is the signature. TV-news-producer-turned-pastry-chef Laura Case makes everything in house, and though it's chocolate that really stole her heart, she also offers flavored toffee, gourmet muffins, cupcakes and custom cakes at the tiny cafe. Get the full European experience by sipping a Lavazza coffee drink with one of Case's creations.
