Upscale French boulangerie La Tropézienne is on an expansion kick, jumping from their original Los Angeles location on La Brea to a pair of new addresses. First up is West Hollywood, followed by Downtown.

La Tropézienne is a staple for anyone who has been to Saint-Tropez in the French Riviera. The sweets shop has been making tarts, breads, and other patisserie for more than 25 years, and has expanded internationally in years to places like New York City as well. The company’s first Los Angeles location opened on La Brea just over a year ago.

Now DTLAer is reporting signage that indicates La Tropézienne will take over the large corner location that formerly played home to AltHouse in Downtown. The spot at 8th and Main would be a good deal bigger than the La Brea outlet, likely meaning a push into a full cafe menu that includes even more quiche, baguette sandwiches, and the like. No word on an opening timeline, as there is another long-awaited Melrose Place location in West Hollywood still to come as well.
