Didsbury's Bisous Bisous is due to open in the city centre later this month

Award-winning French-style patisserie Bisous Bisous have revealed plans to open a new shop in Manchester city centre later this month.

The Didsbury-based patisseriers - who last year scooped 'Best Producer' in the Observer Food Monthly Awards - have taken over a spot between Waterstones book store and cafe chain Patisserie Valerie (who are bound to be chuffed) on Deansgate.

Owners Alex Moreau (63 Degrees) and Kirsty McAlpine opened the diddy pastel-hued patisserie in the heart of Didsbury Village in 2014, with a desire to 'preserve the art of French pastry'.

Their exquisite hand-made confections proved a roaring success, leading to a second operation at Altrincham Market, a concession at Selfridges Trafford Centre, and now a prime spot on Manchester's busiest high street.

Reviewing Bisous Bisous in November 2014, Confidential food writer Ruth Allan wrote: 'The store is as pretty as the cakes inside. Vanilla frosting lures you in as coffee aromas drift skywards. Marcarons paint pastel scenes on the counter, while behind the spotless glass cabinets, pain d’epi (£1.80) - baguettes shaped like ears of wheat - poke out of wicker baskets in front of an ornate mirror.'

Bisous Bisous Deansgate is due to open by the end of April.
