Make A Moment In Your Life A Little Sweeter

Who We Are

Janjou Patisserie was founded in Boise, Idaho in 2008  by Moshit and Chuck, a husband and wife, as a wholesale bakery selling mostly cookies to local shops. A retail bakery and a cafe was opened in 2013. 
Janjou Patisserie is named after Moshit’s mother whose nickname was Janjou. 

Moshit Mizrachi-Gabbitas  Owner and Pastry Chef of Janjou Pâtisserie, moved to Boise, Idaho from Israel in 2007.
After several years in the semi-conductor industry, she decided to make a change of career and follow her passion for baking.  She graduated from Estella kitat Oman, a leading baking school in Israel and completed her internship at Mazzarrine, a high end French Pâtisserie in the Tel-Aviv area. 
Since then she has continued her education by taking many classes taught by renowned French pastry chefs. 

Chuck Gabbitas Owner and the man who makes it all possible. A gifted plastic fabricator, well-known for his skills in the semiconductors industry and a native Idahoan is the person who wears many hats from purchasing to Barista and the person who makes Moshit’s dream happen on daily basis.

Fine French pastries in Boise? You bet: JANJOU PÂTISSERIE


Pastry chef Moshit Mizrachi-Gabbitas opened Janjou Patisserie in 2013 and it quickly became known as one of the best bakeries in the region. Originally from Israell, she’s a stellar French-style baker. Now, she’s a James Beard Foundation semifinalist, and although there is little chance of her moving forward in the awards because of Idaho’s isolation, the impact on her business has been immediate. She’s busier than ever, trying to keep up with demands for her luscious cakes, crisp cookies, flaky croissants and sweet and savory pastries.


We use high quality, organic and local ingredients as much as possible. The butter, (the heart and soul of our pastries), the milk and cream for the coffee bar, come from Cloverleaf creamery in Buhl, ID. 
Our coffee beans are roasted weekly, in small batches by Lizzy’s fresh coffee in Ketchum, ID.
We use Valrhona chocolate in all of our pastries, desserts and drinks.
Every dessert and pastry are meticulously handcrafted daily by Moshit and her team of bakers who have a great passion for quality and detail.
