In a recent article, "These 11 Places to Drink Champagne Are Anything Brut Flat," Fodor's Travel magazine recognized Cleveland's own Coquette Patisserie (11607 Euclid Ave., 216-331-2841) as one of the best spots around the country to imbibe in the bubbly stuff.

And with New Year's Eve just around the corner, it's a perfect time to head to the University Circle destination, voted Best Desserts in this year's Best Of Cleveland list, for at least a glass to celebrate the fact that 2017 is nearly gone.

Don't be afraid to sample the shop's macarons and eclairs, too. As our own Food Editor Douglas Trattner has noted: "We adore Coquette's sweets because they aren't sugar bombs, but rather playful compositions that straddle the fence between sweet and savory, creamy and crunchy, buoyant and intense."

Here's what Fodor's Travel magazine had to say about Coquette Patisserie:
This charming French pastry shop is a real hidden gem in Cleveland’s University Circle neighborhood. Coquette Patisserie serves the best éclairs, macarons, and entremet in town, along with an excellent grower’s champagne list. Premier cru producers like Aubry and Pierre Gimonnet are available by the glass for a fraction of the price you’d see in most cities.
