About Us

Founded in 2013, Renaissance Patisserie is Charlotte’s award-winning premier destination for authentic and traditional French pastries, viennoiserie, breads, and bistro café fare. 


Under the artistic vision of classically-trained French chef Sylvain Rivet, Renaissance has grown from a humble farmers market stand to a brick and mortar outpost of French cuisine. Chef Rivet has worked worldwide, including Morroco, Switzerland, Tokyo, Haiti, Mexico, the Maldives, and many more. 


Tucked away in Charlotte’s chic Specialty Shops SouthPark, SSSP, we serve everything from mouth-watering sandwiches to award-winning croissants. We offer an intriguing variety of wine and champagne, as well as international and domestic beer. 


You can also contact us in regards to custom-designed cakes for your celebration needs. We also offer soups, stews, and family-portioned takeaway meals. There is indoor and outdoor seating for all, with exterior patio heaters. 

Bienvenue à tous!
