On February 1st, Cannelle will open in Detroit and Chef Matt Knio said it will look nothing like its Birmingham patisserie at 159 N. Eton Street in the Rail District, known for delicious French croissants, strawberry tarts, macarons and other goodies created from flour, butter, sugar and eggs. Located in Capitol Park at 45 W. Grand River, the new space will have an updated menu with the addition of a few sandwiches and four more desserts. So why open a second location of the French-style patisserie and coffee shop in Detroit? “I love what’s happening down there and I love what’s happening to the city. I want to be part of it,” he said. This isn’t the only addition he has planned, either. Knio said they plan to expand to an Ann Arbor location in 2020.
