Dinette Nationale & Raplapla – Sweet Eats & Adorable Dolls

Dinette Nationale calls itself a manufacturer of sweets (fabrique de choses sucrées), and when I discovered this Montreal company online through Foodie Pages I wanted to find out more about it.  This lead me to the boutique-workshop Raplapla where I discovered the cutest, most unique dolls EVER.  Owned by Erica Perrot, the entire shop is just so creative and lovely.  And of course, I also found Dinette Nationale which is owned by both Erica and Catherine Lepine Lafrance who makes the sweets.

For example, she mentioned jams as a seasonal item.  You can choose a subscription for 1 month, 6 months, or a year.  What a perfect gift for someone with a sweet tooth!

Originally from the prairies and now in Montreal, I love exploring new places, eating great food and modern design. I'm mom of two wild things and paper and cake make me happy. Photographing your cutie family would make me very happy.
