A pâtisserie is the type of French or Belgian bakery that specializes in pastries and sweets.

In France and Belgium the pâtissier is a pastry chef who has completed a lengthy training process, typically an apprenticeship, and passed a written examination. Often found in partnership with a boulangerie, pâtisseries are a common sight in towns and villages in France. In Korea the term pâtissier is used as well. In France and Quebec, the term pâtisserie also refers to the pastries produced by a pâtissier. Mass-produced pastries are also sometimes called pâtisserie.
