Story

lucette grace cookielucettegrace is a contemporary patisserie in the heart of downtown Raleigh.

The team behind lucettegrace is led by pastry chef/owner Daniel Benjamin. Born and raised in Valparaiso, Indiana; his route to Raleigh was not direct, but rather a journey of winding roads taking him from coast to coast and back again. Pursuing his craft like a quest, Benjamin went to work for some of the country’s best pastry chefs in NYC, Florida, San Francisco, Chicago, New Orleans, and Washington D.C. lucettegrace is the next chapter for a pastry chef who has spent the last 15 years in some of the finest kitchens across America. With roots firmly planted in the City of Oaks, Daniel Benjamin creates a style of pastry built on tradition, but uniquely realized for Raleigh today. lucettegrace is a starting point for your day, an escape in the middle, and a reward at the end.
