In June 2009, Merwann and Christophe presented their father, Toni, with the most memorable gift for his birthday- a tower of 200 macarons, each handmade with love by his boys.

Touched by this gesture that brought upon a great deal of nostalgia, PAUL LAFAYET was founded from one man's longing for a taste of home and his fond memories of spending time in his favourite pastry shop in France.

As fine pâtisserie were only limited to a few 5-star hotels back then, Toni saw an opportunity to fill a gap in the market. PAUL LAFAYET first opened doors in December 2009 with a petite shop at the opening of K11 Art Mall in Hong Kong.
